Fostering a Love of Nature and Culture in Kids
Research shows that children benefit from access and exposure to nature, arts, and culture. Here are some tips for connecting your kids with everything the Catskills have to offer.
Grab a picture book or activity guide
Let your child choose a book on a subject that interests them and let that guide your adventure.
Check out local libraries, museums, and nonprofit organizations for programming
Community organizations offer public programming on a huge range of topics for kids of all ages. Many of these programs are free!
Whether you prefer backwoods tent camping or campgrounds with amenities, camping provides a great way for kids to connect with nature in new ways.
Try nature journaling
All you need is some paper and the writing utensils of your choice. Encourage kids to sketch what they see or write poems or stories.
