Afterschool Programs

Afterschool programs at the Hitchcock Center are all about getting kids outside to run, jump, climb, splash, invent, imagine, play and be a free-range kid! Our programs seek to support free play and experimentation in the outdoors in a supportive environment at each child’s comfort level. We help foster creativity, nature skills, inquiry and friendships for ages 6-11 and spend our afternoons with hands-on projects, team building, exploring and connecting with nature. Develop your child’s confidence at afterschool!

Sometimes you just need to run, explore and play! That’s what we do at Girls into the Wild, and lots more. Girls into the Wild is designed to get girls outside, playing and engaging with nature in their own way. Instructor Katie Koerten strives to offer games and activities that each girl can participate in at her own comfort level, from climbing trees, to playing camouflage in the forest, to running and whooping wildly through fields. Even in winter we’ll spend the entirety of the afternoon outside so bring your warmest layers and come have some snowy fun! Families provide their own transportation to the Hitchcock Center. Limited to 10 participants.
