Forest Play Summer Program
at Blue Rock School
Summer play, the authentic way.
Our weekly theme provides a focus for our daily activities.
Each day includes woodland or garden activities, eco focused crafts, sprinkler play, healthy organic snacks, and plenty of time to make friends and join in our counselor led group games.
