Vacation Nature Experiences for Young People
CEED offers our vacation Nature Experiences to children going into kindergarten through high school. These programs get kids outdoors exploring nature and learning about our Long Island environment. We started four years ago with a two-week program for children going into second through sixth grade and now offer five weeks of programs for children entering kindergarten all the way through high school.
We are doing this for our families, for the children, and for the planet. With these efforts, we hope to help raise children who appreciate our natural environment and are ready to take on the environmental challenges ahead. Give your children an opportunity to have loads of fun, connect with nature, and understand their natural world through hands-on fun and learning.
Enrollment for 2023 spring and summer programs begins soon. Join our mailing list so you’ll receive notice when registration begins!
