SUMMER 2021: THANK YOU!
We are indebted to everyone who helped make this summer happen, especially families who trusted us to care for and engage their children. We had our highest-ever number of middle schoolers this summer! We extend a huge shout out to UAS families, to students who attended our programs, to high school volunteers, to donors, and to our education partners, including:
Friends of Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens
Friends of the National Arboretum/Washington Youth Garden
The Omni Shoreham Hotel
Washington International School
Without access to bathrooms, water, and emergency shelter, we would not have been able to run full-day outdoor programs.
Learning and exploring outdoors is vital to our mental and physical wellbeing, and we couldn’t have done it without our community partners. We’re #StrongerTogether!
Resources for home use
Our resources page includes information on where to get free meals, things to do at home, and walks and hikes where it may be easier to maintain distance from others to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Did you know?
