Why spend summer days indoors at your house when you can spend them outdoors at ours? Children entering grades 1 through 6 are invited to spend a week in the Children’s Garden at Historic Bartow-Pell having fun and learning about ecology, sustainability, and local history. This unique program mixes core activities in the organic garden with exploration of the 19th-century mansion and the Northeast Woodlands Native American wigwam. Also up: engaging crafts, creative cooking, Urban Park Ranger hikes, and more. 

Registration and pre-payment required. Visit for details.
