Our early learning programs are the perfect fit for your little ones’ curiosity about the world around them.

Our Programs

Big Fish Little Fish

Kids and their favorite adults actively explore and learn about the habitats of Odiorne Point State Park together in this outdoor program. Adventures are designed to inspire curiosity and a sense of wonder, and to empower and build a child’s confidence as a young scientist and naturalist.

Each meeting is based on a different theme; visit our daily schedule to learn more. We go out rain or shine, but focus more on indoor activities during inclement weather.
