While off from school for the February break on Friday, Monday and Tuesday, February 15th, 18th and 19th kids in grades kindergarten through 5th are invited to come to Flanders to experience “Amazing Animals” where they will spend time discovering the wonderful world of animals.
Centered at the Flanders trail house they will hike the trails and learn how to track animals active in winter. They will also visit the animals that make their home in the Flanders North Barn to search for the eggs that the hens have laid and learn new facts about farmyard animals.
These will be fun filled days packed with exploring the great outdoors, learning about the wonderful world of all types of animals as well as age appropriate stories, games and crafts. We will care for them, entertain them and educate them while giving them a fun, memorable day!
Preregistration is required. Flanders is offering three different sessions for each of these special fun days. Choose the morning session from 9AM to 1PM, the afternoon session from 1-5PM or a full day session which goes from 9AM -5PM.
Parents are asked to have their children dress for the weather and to bring a bag lunch or snack. Pre-registration is required. The cost per child each day for either the morning or afternoon session is $30 members and $40 for nonmembers. Full day cost for each day is $60 for members and $80 for nonmembers. Early care is available at $8 per hour.
