The kids will be on break, and you’ll need somewhere to take them (and you) to have fun, and secretly keep their minds learning! Join us for a whole week filled with science, experiments, crafts, demos and activities- fun for the whole family. Each day will feature different activities and live animal presentations so come every day for something new!

MONDAY

1:00 – 3:00: Don’t be afraid of getting sprayed! Come meet a skunk with Wild West Wildlife Rehabilitation Center.
