Sustainable Summer Break

Group Childcare and Environmental Education for grades K-4!

Sessions are June 17-21, June 24-28, and July 1-5 from 9am-3pm

Sustainable Summer Break seeks to provide affordable childcare which connects kids to the environment around them, inspires them to appreciate nature, and exposes them to environmental resources in the community such as parks, museums, wildlife sanctuaries, and lakes, all while having FUN! This will be the kind of summer break you remember from your own childhood, with lots of time in the sun, running, playing, exploring, arts & crafts, and making friends.

Prices for each session include daily pick ups and drop offs from your home, all admissions costs, and a 3:1 ratio of kids:adults. Our itinerary includes trips to the Lawrence Hall of Science, the Children's Discovery Museum, Adventure Playground, and even pedal boating at Lake Merritt!
