Kids can spend their summer building, crafting, learning, and playing their way through Deep River County Park! This 8-week program highlights the many STEM components of the park through hands-on activities set in a natural, historical, and beautiful environment. Each course is designed to build on knowledge learned from the previous weeks while being able to be enjoyed independently if you can only make it to a few! Snacks & all supplies are included with the cost of the program. Fun is unlimited!
Each week's session builds on what's been discussed before but can be enjoyed individually.
