BURGESS BOOK CLUB
Going strong since 2010, this monthly program
offers children the opportunity to share their thoughts, listen to
others, learn about the animal subject of the month, explore outdoors
and meet a live animal. Cost to cover refreshments is $2 per month.

Summer Classes are listed under Vacation Programs
Our children’s programs are aligned for E-STEM (Environment, Science,
Technology, Engineering and Math). Your child’s attendance for the
full week ensures all content is covered. Individual day registrations
will also be accepted.
While weekly sessions for the different
age groups may have the same title, every session is age/ability
appropriate. There may be explorations out on the water noted alongside
the daily location. Peter Rabbit’s Friends and Discoverers explore the
pond at Green Briar in our 14 foot canoe-catamaran powered by staff and
junior naturalist volunteers. Explorers use single canoes and are
arranged according to experience/ability as noted by our staff.
staff provide necessary age/size appropriate flotation vests. You are
welcome to bring your own vests on those days.
Each Class is led by a
Burgess Society Teacher/Naturalist who is Pediatric First Aid Certified
and CORI checked with a Summer Naturalist Assistant. Peter Rabbit’s
Friends and Discoverers are also assisted by a volunteer Junior
Naturalist Aide. Classes are limited
up to 12 children for Peter
Rabbit’s Friends and up to 14 children for Discoverers and Explorers.
