Renfrew Institute's 'Down A Garden Path' Summer Program for Kids

Area children are invited to explore Renfrew Institute's four-square garden in the Summer Institute program, "Mornings in the Park: Down a Garden Path."
Designed for children completing grades K-4, the program will be held from 9:30-11 a.m. on four consecutive Tuesdays, July 2 through 23, at Renfrew Park in Waynesboro.
Renfrew Institute garden instructors will guide participants as they look for hidden treasures and hunt for butterflies and ladybugs.
"Students will make garden crafts, explore an old barn, listen to stories, or make rain with watering bells," said Sherry Hesse, the institute's director of cultural studies. Kids should wear shoes and clothes that can get dirty, she said. "Each day the children will water, dig, pick and play."
The cost is $4 per child per session for Renfrew Institute members, and $5 per child per session, non-members. Membership information is available at or by calling 717-762-0373.
The program is limited to 20 children per session, and children may attend one or more sessions. Pre-registration is not required. Those wishing to attend should meet at the visitors center at Renfrew Park, and arrive 15 minutes early to register.
Underwriting support for this program provided by Renfrew Institute's Today's Horizon Fund contributors: APX Enclosures, Inc., The Carolyn Terry Eddy Family: Carolyn, with daughters Connie Fleagle & Kim Larkin; and The Nora Roberts Foundation. Facility support is provided courtesy of Renfrew Museum and Park.
