FREE WATERWAY GUARDIANS PROGRAMS
Thanks to funding and generous flexibility from the Chesapeake Bay Trust and the DC Department of Energy and Environment, Urban Adventure Squad is excited to offer four, free watershed education programs that will allow students safe opportunities to be together and to get support from the Squad with the back-to-school transition:
Free, in-person, outdoor programs for children entering grades 3-8 (educators and students will be masked):
-Tuesday, Aug. 3, 9am-noon, near Peirce Mill/Rock Creek Park
-Monday, Aug. 16, 9am-noon, near Peirce Mill/Rock Creek Park
-Tuesday, Aug. 17, 9am-noon, near Peirce Mill/Rock Creek Park
To register, you will need to create a new account or log into your existing account. This link takes you to our registration site, which is powered by UltraCamp. If your child will be in grades 3-8 in fall 2021, you will see these programs in your registration options. If you see a waitlist, please get on it! We'll do our best to accommodate more children. Please DO NOT sign up for any program you cannot commit to. Space is very limited.
