Have a chance to feed the animals, hike the trails, fish at the pond, cross the two-line challenge, and much more! Try out some of our favorite games like Capture the Flag! Explore the farm while completing a scavenger hunt. There might even be some prizes at the end!

7/6-7/9: Fear Factor
We invite you to challenge yourself in our version of Fear Factor! The challenges we will attempt this week should not be tried by anyone, anywhere! Can you make it across the two-line bridge challenge blindfolded? Do you have a fear of heights? Challenge yourself and try out the Flying Squirrel! Bob for worms (the gummy kind) in a pie tin filled with whipped cream! Can you handle the chill and grab marbles out of an ice-cold bucket of water using your toes? Push yourself and test your limits this week! You can do great things!
Possible Field Trip: Tree Top Adventures

7/12-7/16: Animal Planet
Woof! Meow! Squawk! Heehaw! We might have some cool animals at the farm that we will definitely get the chance to check out this week, but there’s so much more out there! Farm animals like alpacas, chickens, goats, and a donkey can be found at Brooksby Farm, but have you checked out the trails? Keep your eye out for animal tracks while we hike this week and if you’re quiet, you might even see a deer. Learn about all different kinds of animal adaptations and create your own unique animal to present at our campfire on Thursday until 6pm while you enjoy some S'mores! Depending on COVID regulations, we may be able to cap our week off with a field trip to the beach!

7/19-7/23: Goin’ Green
Reduce, reuse, recycle! Participants will learn cool ways to reuse household objects they might typically throw away. All crafts this week will include repurposed items in some way. Create a reusable shopping bag to reduce plastic use. Test your knowledge of which items can be recycled and which cannot by playing a fun bean bag toss game!
Possible Field Trip: TBD

7/26-7/30: Olympics Week
Let’s see those skills at our version of the Olympics! Work together in team events and find your niche for individual events. If you think the Olympics are only about sports, you’d be mistaken. Our Olympics allows for everyone to find something they enjoy competing in. Design and create your teams’ flag, build the best cabin out of pretzel sticks, or test out your arm in noodle javelin or frisbee discuss! On Thursday, we will have an awards ceremony at a campfire until 6pm, complete with a celebratory S'mores! Depending on COVID regulations, we may be able to cap our week off with a field trip to the beach!

8/2-8/6: Buggin’ Out
Creepy Crawly! You don’t have to be scared of bugs, they are super cool! This week, participants will get to explore the world of bugs! Did you know some bugs live in the water? Did you know bees wings beat 11,400 times a minute? Did you know butterflies taste with their feet? Learn more about this when we make our own butterfly feeders. Play some Dead Ant tag and make beeswax candles this week, too!
Possible Field Trip: The Butterfly Place

8/9-8/13: Under the Sea
Splash! Come learn about all things water this week! Learn about how we can test water and why, different aquatic habitats and creatures, and even a full day dedicated to sharks! Enjoy some fishing and exploring at the pond. Make sure you have a change of dry clothes for this week as many of our games will include getting wet. Who’s ready for water balloon tosses and sponge relays? Thursday will be an extended day until 6pm for those who would like to dry off around a warm campfire and enjoy some S'mores! Depending on COVID regulations, we may be able to cap our week off with a field trip to the beach!

8/16-8/20: Symphony of the Five Senses
This week, explore all of the cool things our five senses help us do! Test out how far away sharks can smell blood in an experiment using our smell. Blindly taste test some jelly beans and see if you can guess the flavor using only your taste. What can we observe using only our eyes? You’d be very surprised! Can you help a blindfolded partner navigate a maze using only your voice and can they listen to your instructions with their hearing? Investigate different materials using your sense of touch and why they might be used for different purposes. Can you feel heat through Styrofoam? What about aluminum foil or cloth? Engineer your own “mitten” design on Friday to show off to your group!
Possible Field Trip: Boston Museum of Science
