The “scopes” program is founded upon the belief that children will thrive in an environment in which they are challenged to think and question, can be playful and imaginative. 

Where you can…

  • Paint a t-shirt with a leaf blower, play a dulcimer, kick a ball,  wield a sword.
  • Code a Raspberry Pi computer; hug a counselor, learn a Japanese phrase, hike a creek
  • Sing a song, hug a snake, create a cartoon, make a friend, draw a portrait
  • Dissect an owl pellet, write a book, picnic a lunch, script and perform in a play
