Summer Explorers

A week-long adventure for kindergarten – third grade students.

Do you like to...
            Investigate your world?
            Find natural “stuff”?
            Explore streams?
            Make new discoveries?
            Work on experiments?

If this sounds interesting to you, then you’ll want to be a Summer Explorer at the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy! Since our Summer Explorer themes follow a four-year rotating schedule, you can join while you’re in kindergarten and continue through third grade, learning exciting new things each year. Our yearly themes include “Water”, “Abiotics”, “Animals", and “Plants”.

A Note to Parents…
We feel it is imperative that children of all ages be given opportunities to form a kinship with the natural world. Not merely to view it, but to experience it. Through investigation and observation, kids discover together how the natural world works and begin building a relationship with it. Since the Perkiomen Creek is the thread that we have in common, what better place for a classroom? Developing a sense of place here within the Perkiomen Watershed links us to the land in which we live.

Integral to our program philosophy is that each student be given the opportunity to learn and grow in an atmosphere that is exploratory, supportive, and exciting. To this end, our staff is composed of gifted and knowledgeable educators who are lifelong learners. We take delight in making discoveries alongside children.  Summer Explorers classes are small in size to ensure personal attention. Two Educators and several Summer Explorer Assistants guide students through the day’s activities. Because space is limited, early registration is recommended!    

Hey kids, as a Summer Explorer you will… 

· ...delve into a variety of exciting and imaginative activities centered
around our theme of the year
· ... play games, create crafts, do experiments
· ...record observations in your own unique journal
· ...and make new friends!

Of course, we always have time for music, environmental theater, and a mid-morning snack, too!
