Apple Playschools’ Apple Scouts Program dives deep into our Environmental Education and Stewardship Social Justice branch, and helps to illuminate the natural resources that surround us every day. Students aged five through twelve embark on a journey that leads them through the natural spaces around Ann Arbor, experiencing the benefits of being outdoors and an attentive curriculum that follows the students’ interests.

Apple Scouts Summer Day Camp embarks on daily field trips exploring the natural areas in Ann Arbor. Respect and compassion for our natural spaces provide the backdrop for a program that explores the ecology of the region as well as how communities, both past and present, utilized these resources in their daily lives. Sign up for 2 week sessions, each providing a different theme to guide our exploration. Camp runs from 8:30-3:30 with aftercare option of 3:30-5:30.
