    SUN School offers outdoor summer school for kids in our valley to prevent summer learning loss. There is no summer school option for elementary kids in our valley.

    Kids from more affluent areas that have summer enrichment for kids, do not fall behind over summer. Contribute today to support SUN School at the Nature Center!

    Give children in our community opportunities to explore nature, experience outdoor fun and do hands-on learning. Jump in and help us make it happen!
