Vacation Week Program

February Vacation Week

For Children 3 through 6 years old!

Registration opens on January 6th 2020!

Our unique vacation week program for children ages 3 through 6 at the South Shore Natural Science Center is a partnership between experienced Nature Center Preschool teachers and knowledgeable Science Center Naturalists!  Teachers and Naturalists combine their talents to facilitate children’s discovery of nature in their own backyard.

“Frozen Forest”
How do plants and animals survive the winter? Which birds brave the cold instead of flying south? Join us as we explore the Frozen Forest through hiking, tracking animals, and using our 5 senses to learn about the world around us. Please dress appropriately for the weather.
