Nature Kids Cooperative - We're Going On A Bear Hunt

We're going on a bear hunt. We're going to find a big one. I'm not scared...
We'll follow a series of interactive clues around the Homestead to explore the area and collect bears. To avoid ant bites, please wear socks and closed toed shoes (pants are a bonus if your self-dressing child is open to suggestions). 

Wednesday is set to be hot, so we may end this activity in the POOL. Pack swimsuits, towels, and a snack if you would like to stay and hop in. Please let your kids know that there must be a parent in the pool area before they can enter. No lifeguard will be on duty. 

9:30AM - Free Play and Arrive
10AM - Bear Hunt Starts! 
11AM - Pool Opens 

The Nature Kids Cooperative is open to Homestead members with children. The local membership of $9.95/month covers the entire family for the weekly nature kids co-op, all Homestead Education Center online resources, AND Homestead monthly events. Anyone is welcome to join. Please make sure your membership is up to date before attending.

To see details on our theme of the week, join our co-op event on The Homestead Education Center's Facebook page. The weekly theme will be posted in the discussion:


You! If you have children who love the outdoors, then join us at the Homestead each Wednesday from 9:30AM - 12:00PM for some nature play. The nature scape play area will be open for children to climb, jump, make believe and explore. An organized activity will be led starting at 10AM for children interested in participating.

Whether you're a mom with a toddler who needs some fresh air, or a homeschool family of six, you're invited to come socialize in this enjoyable learning environment. Our activities will be focused on nature, science, and seasonally inspired crafts. 

Cool Off in the Pool

Bring your suits, towels, and a snack and we’ll end our bear hunt at the pool!
