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!
