Lunch and Afterschool Nature Play Clubs for Ages 4-5 

Click here for a Nature Play Club brochure. 

The Museum is happy to once again offer its popular lunch and after school Nature Play Clubs for 4 and 5 year olds. Extend your child’s outdoor playtime for up to three days a week at the Museum with Museum Educators. "Unstructured" play in nature is a wonderful way to develop coordination, practice cooperation, and connect to the environment.  Children will play in Grasshopper Grove, our unique nature play area as well as explore other sites on the Museum's property. If inclement weather brings them inside, the focus will still be on free play and games using natural elements. In addition, the extended hours help children prepare for the full days of kindergarten. (Clubs will run only if minimum enrollment is met.) Children in the Museum’s preschool classes will be escorted to the Club from their classrooms

*The program will follow the Cornwall School District Schedule for holidays and weather related closings.*
