April Vacation Camp
Making plans for the upcoming April school vacation week? Blithewold Mansion, Gardens & Arboretum is offering a fun-filled week of camp during April Vacation. Enroll your child for the full week, one day, or even a few half days! No child will want to miss an opportunity to play with friends and explore Blithewold’s daffodil wonderland. Camp staff will encourage children to get involved in active outdoor spring play such as nature hikes, trips to the gardens and frog pond, as well indoor activities such as exploring the Mansion, putting on plays, and taking part in games and spring arts and crafts. Each day has a new theme that will combine indoor and outdoor (weather permitting) activities.
Magical Mystical Monday – April 15
Campers will be encouraged to bring a wild imagination to camp today, as it will be filled with forts and fairies, wizards and science experiments, magic and surprises! Campers will get to create their very own herbal potions, write their own fairy tales and even get to create fairy or gnome houses in the gardens.
History Detectives Tuesday – April 16
During this fun and educational day, campers will have the opportunity to explore Blithewold Mansion, Gardens and Arboretum from top to bottom! We will become history detectives, investigating the past and uncovering the facts. Through fun activities
