Print More

Again, this summer, children and families will have the opportunity to learn about nature. Children will spend time outdoors, discover the natural world, meet new friends, and have fun! Children, ages 4-12+, explore the wildlife at Hilltop through  STEM-based activities. Bugs, birds, trees, water and farming will be discovered.

For Ages 4-6

There are two programs.

Little Bugs – This is an introduction to nature in the outdoors with an adult and child.

‘Lil Chicks – Our instructor’s agricultural project is to raise chickens at the Farm, “in the backyard chickens”, to demonstrate the raising chickens and how eggs develop.

The Conservation Explorers is for ages 6-10

Explorers learn to identify plants and animals and their role in the environment. They will develop a stronger connection to the farm and the origin of their food. Each session offers different activities including chores around Hilltop.

The Hilltop Adventurist is for ages 10-12+

Hilltop Adventurists will explore a different aspect of how nature, wildflowers, composting and hay have been important influences on this former Suffield dairy farm.
