Our philosophy starts with the simple belief that kids are capable of incredible things. Our job is to nurture that ability; our goal is to support kids' healthy development. Play is how kids learn--here, it is in both a STEM-rich environment and inviting outdoor experience.
Visit » Calendar » Backyard and Beyond: Intro to Orienteering
Orienteering is a sport where participants find their way from checkpoint to checkpoint through the woods with the help of a map and a compass. This fun and easy introduction to orienteering is geared toward young children and their families. Follow the map around a short trail loop through the conservation land, collecting stickers as you find each checkpoint. If you’ve orienteered before or you’re ready for more of a challenge we have three other orienteering maps, ranging in difficulty, for you to try!
Please note that the conservation land trails are not ADA or stroller accessible, please wear appropriate footwear and clothing. For more information on Great Hill, please visit http://www.actontrails.org/great-hill/.
