SHERBURNE — Parents and children need look no further for summer fun, education, and outdoor recreation. Spread across four age groups, Rogers Center is offering seven unique weeks of The Joys of Summer, Amazing Adventures, Call of the Wild, The Magical Woodland, and Cabinet of Curiosities (12 to 15 year olds only).
“Ellen Rathbone has enriched and expanded the summer programming that is already a staple for many upstate families,” said David Carson, Rogers Center executive director. “I’m really hoping to participate myself. The Cabinet of Curiosities is of particular interest and I hope to lead a few groups down into Hemlock Hollow.”
Summer camp at Rogers is made possible by the unique relationship between Rogers and the Department of Environmental Conservation, which helps to fund up to eight college interns each year. Further support is provided by the RC Smith Foundation. Rising environmentalists are able to hone their skills in education as they teach upstate New York children how to play and learn in nature.
Registrations are capped at two weeks per child to ensure that the greatest number of children and teenagers are able to experience the excitement and intrigue of a summer spent at Rogers. Further information and registration forms can be found at friendsofrogers.org/program/summer-adventure-camp
