Field Trips - TimberNook Northwest Indiana
Program Details:

Chesterton Homeschool Co-op:  Earth Day Field Trip

Sensational Forts!!       April 22       9am-12pm

The TimberNook Sensational Fort field trip is a nod to years past. Children will be immersed in the
magic and mystery of building a fort in the woods, while incorporating a number of unique and sensory rich materials. Children will be trusted to build with real tools and use a variety of loose materials that will require complex problem solving to put together. Imaginations will run wild and children will collaborate as they hone a variety of skills including fine motor, gross motor, cognitive, and social cooperation.
As a component of the field trip, teachers will be supplied with extension activities to bring back to the classroom
that are aligned with common core and next generation science standards, providing an additional depth to the day spent at TimberNook. Extension activities will be e-mailed when Field Trip registration is full or no less than 1 month prior to session.

Field trip is 100% outdoors. Please dress for the weather!

Parents: I will send out an email describing the role of parents/chaperones. Bring a seat if you do not want to sit on the ground or stand during the entire session. Bring snacks and water for the children, they work hard and often need refueling!!  Lunches may be brought and eaten after completion of session. The Gabis Arboretum has trails, grassy fields, a railroad  museum and playground, and many acres available to explore once TimberNook session ends!! Cost of session includes entrance fee.

No Refunds unless state or federal mandate closes public activities. If weather is expected to be too extreme, (tornado, lightning storm) the program will be rescheduled for an alternate date.
