About our Nature Detectives After School Program


Our Nature Detectives After School Program provides a safe educational experience focused on outdoor exploration and scientific inquiry in the many habitats of Odiorne Point State Park, including the rocky shore, sandy shore, salt marsh, woods, and freshwater pond. Children will spend time engaging and connecting with their peers, asking questions about the natural world and making sensory-based, hands-on discoveries. Programming will vary on a daily basis, and will provide a critical supplement to your child’s academic studies. A homework-time block of 30-45 minutes will be provided if requested, so children wishing to complete schoolwork may do so.

Safety Guidelines and Protocol

Please read our Health and Safety Protocol for Youth Programs Fall 2021-Winter 2022 for a detailed plan of the protocol and procedures followed for all youth programs in consideration of COVID-19. Be aware that there may be updates to our policies to ensure a safe environment as the community health crisis evolves or resolves.
