Educational Workshops for Kids

Interested in a field trip? We offer options you can find in the park rentals section of the menu!

 

We have a set of Summer workshops for children in a program we call: Summer Series for Kids! These are specialized programs for children, aged 5 through 12. These workshops are programs designed by local educators and artists to offer entertaining, interactive and educational experiences for students and adults. The programs are free with paid admission and free to members. Daycare organizations and summer schools are welcome and should call for information and registration. Programs start at noon and last about an hour. Pictures are below of the events!

June 5th, 2019 | An American Indian Trail

This class ONLY, has a reservation request and offers two classes. Call and reserve at spot at 12 pm or at 1:30 pm. Kids will get to see and touch authentic artifacts, many found in the park and surrounding areas. Learn what life was like for Native Americans by exploring a miniature village, using replica tools, and playing customary games.

June 12th, 2019 | Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

What do pickle buckets, fractions, auto parts, Italian terminology, fruit salad, density, listening skills, and tin cans have in common? They’re all essential elements of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom! Stan Ginn weaves these elements together in the process of teaching groups of youngsters to play polyrhythmic musical compositions on ordinary objects. 

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom has been developed specifically with Academic Content Standards in mind. Not just music standards, but mathematics and science as well. Abstract concepts are demonstrated in terms of musical phenomena to shed new light on material the students are very likely studying already in the classroom.

Presented by Stan Ginn.
