Our nature, art and science program is truly engaging all day long!
Children explore streams, build dwellings, pick berries, play games and make art with natural materials in a small group setting. They have time to observe different plants and animals and get to know them. We guide children through artful questioning of the world, where we often make first-time discoveries. This is what kids love so much about Strawtown – it’s always new and exciting.
Our professional staff are specially trained as artists, educators, and naturalists. A high staff-child ratio assures individual attention.
Like all Strawtown programs, Summer Discovery Days follow our philosophy of Nature-Connected education.

A NOTE TO PARENTS:
If you are new to Strawtown, we ask for a welcome meeting with you and your child upon registering for Summer. We take great care in creating a safe and fun learning environment for all children. At Strawtown, safety also includes emotional safety and how we speak with one another. Our goal is for children to feel happy and excited to come back the next day, and so listening is our first principle of safety. We are a small program and space is limited. Please call (845) 499-2252, or email us to set up a welcome meeting. Thanks for your understanding, and we look forward to meeting you!
