Repeated three times during the summer, this Day Camp is back by popular demand! Campers work and play like yesterday as Bertha and Alice might have in the 1800s, attending the schoolhouse that they loved, harvesting fruits and vegetables, and ending each session exploring the “shimmering” creek. Campers should wear swim suits under shorts, wear tennis shoes and bring water wading shoes, sunscreen, a towel and a lunch.

The focus is on process not product, but does align with the Rochester Community Schools’ curriculum.

Terrific Tuesdays in the Garden
Terrific Tuesdays
$3 Museum Members | $5 Non-Members
Adults are free!

Terrific Tuesdays in the Garden provide children with the opportunity to use all five senses while learning the basics of gardening. There is a new theme each week and children enjoy stories, crafts, activities and snacks. Children ages 3 to 5 years and their caregivers learn how plants grow, how butterflies and ladybugs help, that we can eat food from plants for every letter of the alphabet and that there are plants for every color of the rainbow. Children ages 6 to 10 years learn more about horticulture, botany and entomology through literature, activities, crafts and snacks.
