Vacation Week Programs at Arcadia

People playing in the snow at Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary

Children ages 6–12 can come to Arcadia to explore the natural world during school vacation in February and April!

We'll be outdoors the entire time, with exceptions for indoor bathroom breaks and unforeseen, extreme weather events. Our motto at Arcadia is "there's no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing!"

Families will be sent a health form to fill out as well as a list of what to bring and what to wear.


3-Day Session (Tuesday–Thursday) • 10:00 am-2:00 pm

We'll begin each day with games, followed by a morning circle that will introduce the themes. Each day will be spent outdoors searching for animal tracks and signs, watching birds, and learning about winter wildlife adaptations.
