Louisville, Ky. (November 28, 2017) —Parents looking for a way to keep their child’s mind learning and exploring during the holidays have a new option this year with Winter Break day camps at The Parklands of Floyds Fork! The Parklands is offering camps December 20-22 and December 27-29, accommodating children in K-3 and 4-6 grades.
Camps at The Parklands offer exciting, enriching, discovery-based field experiences that allow children to touch, see and learn about the world around them. Children will participate in hands-on science investigations in the natural setting of The Parklands and through the use of state-of-the-art classrooms at the PNC Achievement Center for Education and Interpretation in Beckley Creek Park.
Each day participants will hike a different trail as they get outside and play in the winter landscape. Guided by knowledgeable Interpretive Rangers, kids will learn their way around Beckley Creek Park, exploring some of the historical and geologically special locations within The Parklands. Along the way, Rangers will lead investigations into topics such as how plants and animals adapt to the winter climate.
All programs offer a balanced day of in-classroom learning and outdoor field experiences. Camp hours are 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Choose from single days of camp or book a full 3-day session at a discounted rate. Sessions are based on age and skill level. Participants in the Grades K-3 sessions cover 2-3 miles per day. If you feel your child is more experienced and can cover more mileage, please consider the Grades 4-6 sessions in which participants cover 5-6 miles per day.
