Children ages 7-11 are invited to come and experience wonder through nature exploration, art, gardening, play, music, dance and storytelling on the beautiful grounds of Rolling Ridge.

During our interactive days together, experienced program leaders and trained Eco-guides will lead groups of young learners through the various eco-systems at the Ridge and instill an appreciation of God’s gift of nature. 

Do you love nature?  Do you love working with kids?  Consider serving as an Eco-Guide during Eco-Adventure.  Eco-Guides must be 15 years or older, and will work with experienced program leaders in facilitating activities and leading a small group of children to the various stations.  Application and Reference forms below.
