Summer Discovery
Sponsored by Little Sewickley Creek Watershed Association

What is Summer Discovery? Summer Discovery is an outdoor education program with four main goals:
  1. increase enthusiasm for learning and discovery
  2. develop community awareness
  3. build a greater appreciation of our wondrous natural world
  4. foster a sense of individual responsibility for the care and wise use of our natural resources.

What do we do? We will take walks in the woods, catch critters in the creek, hug a tree, talk to the birds, visit Fern Hollow Lake, hike at night and get a close-up of the stars (one family night each week!), and much more.

Who can sign up?Any student who is presently in 3rd, 4th, 5th, or 6th grade (2015-2016) is eligible. Spaces are limited but we accept applications until we are full at 24 students per week.

When does it happen?

What time?


What should I wear? Dress for the weather as Summer Discovery will happen rain or shine. Shorts and T-shirts are fine as long as it is warm enough. A jacket, sweatshirt, sweatpants, or jeans may be better for cool mornings. A raincoat or poncho and boots would be helpful for a rainy day. (If there is severe weather, it is the parents’ decision whether or not to send their child. We will remain under a pavilion during thunder and lightening.)

What should I bring?

What happens on Wednesday night? The “Discover the Night” program is held in Sewickley Heights Borough Park off Fern Hollow Road. Your whole family is invited to look at the night sky through a telescope and take a walk through the woods. We will begin at 8:30 and end by 10:00.

How much? The tuition is $35 per camper to help defray the cost of insurance. (If there is more than one camper per family, the cost is $50 per family.) Please make checks out to Little Sewickley Creek Watershed Association and submit with registration form.
