Register Now for Nature Weeks at Frosty Drew

BirdwatchingFrosty Drew Nature Weeks are a fun, educational alternative to summer day camp for children ages 4-10.  Since 1983, the educators at Frosty Drew Nature Center have helped children explore the environment of Ninigret Park and Ninigret Wildlife Refuge, which includes fresh and salt ponds  – perfect for discovery using a seine net!

Nature Weeks begin June 29 and go through August 21. Each week has a different theme and different age group, but all run Monday through Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. with the option of after-care available. There is a different nature-based topic each day in this hands-on program. Children have fun outdoors, in and out of the water, and experience times for active adventure and quiet reflection. Children create journals that later become a treasured souvenir of summer memories.

BugsEach day focuses on a specific theme. The daily themes vary but could include insects, birds, plants, sea life, reptiles, astronomy, and environmental issues. The small class size and the naturalist-to-child ratio of 1:6 encourages children to develop their curiosity through observation and exploration. The Frosty Drew Nature Center & Observatory is an independent, educational nonprofit located at 62 Park Lane, in Ninigret Park, Charlestown, RI, off of U.S. Route 1.

The mission of Frosty Drew Nature Center & Observatory is to deliver environmental education with a primary focus on marine aquatic habitats and the night sky.
