Summer at the NatureLab! (AGES 5-9)


We're looking forward to another fantastic summer with our super-creative, enthusiastic, curious, maker/builder campers!

Currently, we are wearing masks while inside for protection against airborne viruses. We will evaluate our policy for masks for indoor summer programs in May.
