Registration open for Merry Barn’s February Vacation Adventure

Tue, 01/24/2023 - 7:30am

The Merry Barn is pleased to welcome campers to a three-day February Vacation Adventure, Tuesday, Feb. 21-Thursday, Feb. 23. The camp is designed for kids ages 8-14, interested in combining their outdoor exploration with curiosity and creativity!

Join Stephanie McSherry and Liz Giles-Brown to hone your sense of direction as you navigate with an orienteering map and tackle orienteering challenges. Explore the woods on snowshoes and discover traces of creatures roaming during the night. Research and create Maine animal trading cards, pen an outdoor adventure story, or imagine a Maine-themed poem in the style of Lynn Plourde’s “At One in a Place Called Maine.”

We’ll learn more about Wilson Bentley and how his fascination with snowflakes took him on an incredible artistic journey. We’ll conduct winter science experiments and create snowflake masterpieces of our own. There’s always time set aside to explore, read, and check out books from the Merry Barn’s library. 

Camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aftercare is available until 5 p.m. Financial assistance is available.
