A collaboration with the Cape Conservatory, Falmouth Art Center, Falmouth Museums on the Green, Falmouth Public Schools, 
National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, and Salt Pond Areas Bird Sanctuaries
Teaching Artists: Corine Adams, Cathy Henrich, Susan Jensen, Grace Simpkins, Jeanne Stewart, Danielle Velesig, and others

This summer, we invite students ages 9-12 to embark on a five-day hands-on adventure with some of the Cape’s most fascinating organizations!

Guided by teachers and local experts, students will spend a day with each of the host organizations, exploring the important concept of sustainability and how it influences science, technology, art, music, history—every part of our daily existence.

Sustainability focuses on how we might live in harmony with the natural world in such a way that it is not damaged or destroyed; rather, it is strengthened, supported, and replenished.  Through special
projects and adventures, students will discover the importance of sustainability 
on our world and culture.

Location: One day at each of the Falmouth organizations listed above 
JUNE 27-30  |  Tuesday through Friday, 9am-1pm (Thursday class from 9am-4pm)  |  Tuition: $175  |  Register
