A child’s ability to explore the natural world around them is as important to their development as breathing clean air, eating fruits and vegetables and reading. Great Parks offers a wide variety of programs and events that spark curiosity and enable a child to discover the world around them. Programs are offered year-round at most Great Parks throughout the county. Some are available for all ages and while others are designed for a particular age range or families to enjoy. Whatever your age and whatever your interests, an adventure awaits you at a Great Park!
Spring & Summer Day Camps
Children can enjoy the parks and challenge themselves to develop a new skill at one of our many day camps. Children ages 7 and up can participate in a Spring Break Horse Camp at the Winton Woods Riding Center. Or during the summer months, children ages 2–17 can participate in one or more camps that get them exploring the woods, meeting live animals up close or even experiencing life on a farm. Kids can also learn to ride a horse, paddle a canoe or kayak, rock climb or shoot a bow and arrow.

Parky’s Farm
A child can make the connection between farms and themselves when they visit Parky’s Farm in Winton Woods. Hands-on programs give them a chance to explore both the plants and animals of farm life. Where else can you possibly milk a goat, help plant potatoes and watch bees going in and out of a hive on their way to collect nectar to make honey?
