No School Day Adventures

Modeled after our summer daycamps, these one-day programs are offered during many scheduled 4J school district No School Days. They take place at Alton Baker Park from 8:30 am-3:00 pm, for kids aged 6-9 years old.

No School Day Programs happen mostly outdoors, but we also have an indoor space (our yurt) for inclement weather. Each program is themed for the season and includes tons of fun games, crafts, hiking, stories, and outdoor exploration. Each program is taught by an experienced environmental educator and an adult volunteer. Class size is limited to a maximum of 12 kids. Programs cost $45 for members and $50 for non-members. Scholarships available. For current No School Day programs see below or our Calendar.
