About this event

Summer Experience 2023 will be an unforgettable summer for your student! We’re offering 9 weekly full-day sessions of long-term projects connecting kids with their community in collaboration with their peers, mentors and local leaders. Every week will include art; nature; Farm to Table; People, History and Place, including indigenous cultures; hiking and canoeing; improving local ecosystems through planting natives, removing invasive species, and monitoring wildlife, including mammals, birds, insects and more! There’s no need to wait for a specific themed week.
