LACONIA — Prescott Farm is offering a WildQuest Winter Camp for children ages 6-12 during the February school vacation week. Camp will take place Feb. 27 to March 3 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.
Each day is filled with new and exciting adventures! Extended care is available.
Depending on the weather, the week will be a mix of: Animal tracking and snowshoeing adventures, sledding, winter games such as "Weasels & Voles," building "quinzhees" or igloos, a Winter Quest, exploring the frozen pond, winter-themed art & craft projects, maple sugaring, and stories around the campfire. Each day there is something new and exciting to look forward to.
Winter Camp, like all camps offered by Prescott Farm, is licensed by the state and led by experienced environmental educators with the goal of fostering an appreciation and understanding of the natural and cultural history of Prescott Farm, and by extension, student's own special places as well. We believe that a camp experience with us will enhance your child's ecological awareness and provide fun learning opportunities in a community-minded and non-competitive atmosphere. Activities include nature activities, animal and plant identification, arts and crafts, quests, games, and hands-on learning. Most of the day is spent outdoors. Extended care can provide supervised playtime before and after regular camp hours.
Those interested in taking part in Winter Camp are encouraged to register well in advance, since space is limited. For those registering before Feb. 21 the cost is $235/week or $47/day ($185/week or $37/day Members of Prescott Farm). Children can be registered by the day or for the full week. After Feb. 21 the cost is $260/week or $52/day ($210/week or $42/Day for Prescott Farm members).
