Let your child explore the wonders of nature through these week-long summer programs at the 200-acre South Shore Nature Center. We’ll get them outside, get their hands dirty and help them develop their own connection to the natural world!

For students entering Kindergarten through 7th grade. Students are grouped by age, which may vary slightly from week to week depending on enrollment.
