StoryWalk® Sundays – June 2022

StoryWalk® Sundays – June 2022

Sunday June 12th, 2022 * 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM
Our series of StoryWalk® Sunday adventures for kids continues in June.
The story posted on the StoryWalk® trail at Pine Hill Park will change monthly, and plans call for a special event to accompany each one on the second Sunday of each month.
June’s StoryWalk® Sunday is the perfect way to celebrate the lazy, crazy days of summer!
Kids will join a guided walk along the story trail as they read the book, then make a special craft project to take home—and enjoy a campfire and yummy s’mores!
June’s storybook is “And Then Summer Comes” by Tom Brenner, a perfect choice as the days get longer and summer is finally here.
“A joyful, sun-drenched tribute to the anticipation and adventures of the warmest season of the year. 
From flip-flops and hide-and-seek to fireworks and ice-cream trucks, from lemonade stands and late bedtimes to swimming in the lake and toasting marshmallows, there’s something for everyone in this bright and buoyant celebration of the sunny season.
Brenner’s lovely, lyrical ode to summers spent outdoors will strike a chord with anyone who’s ever counted down the days until school gets out, and Jaime Kim’s jubilant, nostalgia-soaked illustrations leave little doubt that summer is indeed a time unlike any other.”
The event is FREE, but pre-registration is required by June 6.
To register, email to: info@natureandcultureinstitute.org or call 717-762-0373.
Limited to 20 children. 
Children in grades K–5 may be dropped off and picked up at 3:00 PM
All families are welcome, but activities are geared for preschool and elementary age kids.
Stay tuned for future StoryWalk® Sundays!   
Current Covid safety guidelines are being followed.
