PRE-SCHOOL-ELEM "OPEN PLAY" PODS

010

Starting this Fall, back by popular demand, we are bringing back our pandemic pods. What exactly is a Pandemic Pod? A Pod is a group of friends that you feel comfortable with during these uncertain and dangerous covid times. A group of friends that you KNOW, have been with throughout the pandemic, and you deem safe to interact with. Put together a group, a POD, of kids and parents, that can safely interact together at Eco Adventures. You can meet once a week, twice a week, or as many times as you wish, for your kids’ enrichment and enjoyment/learning experience. What a way to get a group of youngsters together to satisfy that vital social interaction their young lives need, while you have the peace of mind knowing that your entire pod is a familiar and safe group. Eco Adventures stringently follows all local and state-mandated guidelines surrounding the virus. In addition, all of our instructors have been vaccinated, providing a safe educational experience for your entire group. Each Pod session will be for 1.5 hrs and include live animal interactions each time and may include, crafts/experiments, games, fossil dig, and open playtime in our award-winning rainforest setting.
Price: $150 for up to 10 people after that $10 per person. Call or email to book. ecoadventuresmd@gmail.com

Eco Adventures and the Home School Community:

"My 10 year old son and I attended the open house before the grand opening of Eco Adventures in Millersville a year ago. I knew right away that this was a place I wanted my son to attend and I knew it would be wonderful for our family and for the home school community. The staff was willing to work with me and set up a home school class and from the very first adventure we were hooked! 

Each class includes hands on animal experiences and this is the only place I have ever been that always seems to say yes in some fashion to the children — Yes, you can touch this way. Yes, we can do that. Yes, we can bring an animal out to look at and learn about. The atmosphere is relaxed and the children are always engaged and excited to learn. They cover so many topics and always in a way that is fascinating. My son enjoyed the program so much that he started working towards the Junior Assistant program and just this July, after 9 months of preparing, he passed the interview and reached his goal. This will be an excellent addition to his home school transcript and we hope to have a working/school relationship with Eco Adventures for many years to come."

*Please help us spread the word and share with your home school groups. You can get $10 off for a NEW participant registration (max of $30 discount) if they mention your name (You must be an existing customer to receive the discount)
