Into the 130+ acres of woods, marsh, trails and natural habitats we go! In this popular program, campers use their heightened awareness, keen observational skills and deductive reasoning abilities to explore and discover what animals, insects and ecological phenomena await them. Like a praying mantis watching over the garden, this program will let children uncover some hidden treasures at Holly Hill Farm. Through interactions and observations, they learn about respect for the animals and habitats that are on the Farm.
“We caught (and released) a toad today at the Ice Pond. We saw an ooetheca and then stared at the sky while in the meadow for a half hour. We waded in the muddy marsh. We hiked an awesome trail in the woods and came to a lookout spot where we could see the ocean. We completed a Quest on the Farm and solved the clues.” Oh the places these Praying Mantis explorers will go!
