CLASSES, CAMPS & KITS

Children will explore their inner creativity by focusing on our natural world. Through the use of varied art mediums, outdoor fun and classroom teaching, they’ll learn and experience more about Earth and its many, incredible wonders.

REGISTER NOW!

Daytime and after school nature-based art workshops for children ages 3 and older.  Please….children must be potty-trained! Take a look at our weekly schedule:

Please note: Supervised Lunch, from 11:30-12:30 each day, is BYOL (bring your own lunch) and costs an additional $5/day. You can find this option in the drop down menu when you are selecting your class time. Weather permitting, we typically eat in our garden and play outside. There are times, however, when we will watch a short, educational video following lunch.

COVID-19 and WALDEN POND: (as of May 31, 2020) 

All of us at Walden Pond so hope that you all, our families, have stayed healthy and safe during these unprecedented times. We miss the sound of laughter, for sure.

Safety is our priority as we look at changing our remaining summer programs. We are planning a new format with decreased class sizes, better utilization of our space and limited time between kids & teachers. 

The first four morning camps in June have been cancelled, but we are having our July and August camps! YIPPEE! They will be different, for sure, but still feel like Walden Pond. The reality, though, is that we may certainly feel the need to cancel our programs. If you have already paid for a camp, your TUITION WILL BE 100% REFUNDED.

Stay safe, find the silver linings and be in touch 🙂

Summer 2020 – Camps

SUMMER AT THE POND IS A GO!! 

We are moving forward, cautiously, with a limited summer program. Rather than have one large group of eager kiddos, we are dividing the day into a morning session (9:00 to 12:00) and an afternoon session (1:00 to 4:00), and limiting enrollment to no more than 10-12 kids/session. We will still create beautiful art, learn about amazing animals, make a mess and HAVE FUN, but safety will be prioritized as we work together to keep everyone healthy. It will be a different experience but I’m hoping a good one. Please call me with any questions or to put your child on a waiting list.
