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 or one day, or even a few half days! We have so much to celebrate this week at Blithewold! 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 play such as nature hikes, trips to the gardens, bamboo forest, and frog pond, as well as indoor activities such as exploring the Mansion, performing in theatrical skits, and taking part in games and spring arts and crafts.

Each day’s new theme will combine indoor and outdoor (weather permitting) activities.

Monday, April 21: Celebrating the Sea  - We'll be making a splash at Blithewold today as we learn about life by the sea! Campers will explore our shoreline, learn about sailing, enjoy ocean-inspired art activites, and take part in other washed-ashore adventures.

Tuesday, April 22: Earth Day Celebration - We appreciate the Earth every day at Blithewold, but today we will hold a special celebration! Join us for a garden party for Mother Earth, with garden activities, recycled-materials art projects, games, face painting, and fun in the great outdoors

Wednesday, April: 23 Flower Festival - Blithewold is always a magical place, but it’s especially so in the spring when all of the fairies return to the gardens! Campers need to bring a wild imagination to camp today because we will investigate some wonders of nature and explore how spring has appeared in Blithewold’s gardens!

Thursday, April 24: Thankful for Theater - Shows, costumes, acting lessons, and more! Today is the day for writing stories, doing arts and crafts, making up silly songs and dances, and having lots of fun with theater!

Friday, April 25: Arbor Day Celebration - Today is all about trees! One could do worse than be a swinger of birches (thank you, Robert Frost!). This is the day for spending outside among the trees, enjoying story times, games, and lessons under the canopy of our vast Arboretum. In honor of Earth Day campers will plant a tree that will grow up at Blithewold.

    If you’ve visited Blithewold during our Christmas season before, I’m sure you’ve noticed the cheery, little shop tucked away in the Breakfast Porch. The Shop at Blithewold normally lives in the Visitor’s Center, but at Christmastime it moves to the Breakfast Porch and nearly triples in size, allowing them to carry more fun, festive, Christmas […]
  • Maple candy (Nov 14, '14)
    One day last week it seemed as if the switch that turns on the Japanese maples was flipped. We all noticed it. And I think we all tried to burn their color on our retinas (and camera sensors) in an attempt to hold us over for winter. And evidently, winter arrived this morning. We weren’t […]
