TKC Junior Explorers
This is a great program for children aged 5-10 who want to learn more about nature and the outdoors!
The program is an environmental education and outdoor appreciation program designed for children aged 5-10 and their families. The program is $35.00 per child which allows them to come to as many Junior Explorers activities throughout the summer as they wish. Also included in the registration price is a t-shirt.
