Brooksvale Park

9:00 – 3
Campers will experience Brooksvale Park and all it has to offer. We believe in outdoor learning and fun. Nature programs with exciting hands-on activities will teach important lessons about the natural world. In the barnyard and garden, campers will assist with the daily care routines and get to know the animals and plants. Older campers then graduate to grooming and training routines with the animals. Traditional outdoor games will help promote team building & cooperative play. Field trips include local parks, farms & nature centers.
