Please do this soon, we need to gather 350 responses by mid October. If you live here but don’t use the library, we want to know why, so we’d like to hear from you, too. If you already did a hard copy survey at the library or at the Harvest and Heritage Festival, THANK YOU!

Although supervised by adults, the activities will be derived by the interests and passions of the kids.
Children ages 9-12 are encouraged to enroll. Each child must be able to walk/hike 2 miles over mildly rough terrain in all weather. A healthy snack will be provided.
The cost is $20 for the entire length of the program and scholarships are available.

Enrollment is limited so please sign up early.
