Children’s Summer Programs

at Glimmerglass State Park

Imagine a place where children are invited to - ‘please touch’, ‘smell this', ‘can you hear?’ ….

A place where it’s OK 'to get a little dirty’.

We believe that childhood is a time for discovery, a time to enjoy the many miracles of the natural world:

 the feel of a snake's skin, the call of the chorus frogs, and the smell of pine trees.

Glimmerglass State Park is the perfect “outdoor classroom”!  

Our summer program allows your child to use all of their senses to explore

 the wonders of the great outdoors through hands-on experiences, games, crafts, stories, songs and much more.  

Our caring staff has a strong commitment to both the environment and to active learning.

Your child's individual strengths and talents will be nurtured through a wide variety of weekly activities.

Programs are held rain or shine. Please check our event calendar for additional information.

Wild Wednesday Scavenger Hunt

The first Wild Wednesday program of the season was a success!  Families from Cooperstown and Cherry Valley visited the nature center and went on a guided sensory trail hike. Afterwards they got to make paintings with the items they collected on the hike. Come join us on our other Wild Wednesday Adventures, see our events calendar and Wild Wednesday flyer above for more information!
