If treating the kids to a fun, educational escape to the countryside this spring sounds like a day at the beach, Cape May Resorts’ new Beach Plum Farm programming is for your crew.

 

Just a short jaunt from the beach and a quaint town for adults, the kids can hang back and enjoy Wilderness Explorers Club at Beach Plum Farm.

During the spring break wilderness adventure, March 24–April 29, your little outdoor adventurers can get outside with a slew of activities, including nature-inspired art classes, planting a garden, birding, learning all about farm life, fueling their inner Katniss by practicing archery and much more.

 

For each activity, task and educational opportunity the kids undertake and complete, they will earn a commemorative pin for their Explorer Sash. They kids will walk away with a souvenir of their lessons and achievements, while mom and dad gallivant in town.
