School Holiday Camp 2023-2024
Is your child bored at home on a day off from school? Why don’t you bring them here to Bucks Audubon for our amazing nature themed school holiday camps!
We get it; it’s hard when your child has off of school when you don’t! That’s why we created these “School Holiday Camps”. Drop off your child at 9am and pick them back up at 3pm after a fun-filled day of nature exploration and discovery!
Each day features unique games, hikes, science experiments, and crafts that all tie into the day’s theme.
Snack will be provided. Please send a lunch with your child as well as a change of clothes including shoes as they will be engaging with nature, and we will be outside throughout the day.
