Mountain School is out on Feb 27th and 28th, so we will have camp to accommodate folks who need childcare.

Questions like, “If you have 3 quarters, 4 dimes, and 3 nickles and pull 4 coins, then what are the odds they total to $0.40”Find out more »

Not for the crafter faint at heart, this class will be challenging. We will create the “bones” of our wings with wire and then seal them together with science and magic to make them look and feel real. This is a great workshop for families who love to dress up and want to take their fairy game to the next level.Find out more »
