We are so excited to venture up to Petersburg, NY to visit our friends at Soul Fire Farm. We’ll be getting down and dirty in the soil and learn about everything from how things grow to why its important for everyone to have access to healthy food. Scavenger hunts, stone balancing, the forest labyrinth, and other activities give adventurers the time to explore and observe the beautiful surroundings. Meals will include freshly grown fruits and vegetables. This is a really great chance to get out of the city and reconnect with the environment in a rewarding and tasty way!
We can't wait to visit our friends at Lowland Farm in Warwick, New York. Our day will be filled with exploring, meeting the animals on the farm, and learning all about how a farm works. From milking cows to rotational grazing, there's so much to cover! Lowland farm is special because their philosophy combines healthy, happy animals with sustainable practices.

This year’s trip to Montauk was full of our old favorites and a bunch of new adventures. We kicked off our week with our annual picnic at Hither Hill by the lighthouse. The views are spectacular and the playground was a hit.
At the Quogue Wildlife Refuge we got an up-close look at the animals that live in Montauk. We also learned about how long it takes different things to break down in the environment. We all agreed to stay away from styrofoam because it never breaks down! Afterwards, we stopped at our favorite ice cream shop, John’s Drive In for a sweet treat. We splashed around in the pool on the days we weren’t exploring the beach. We had a blast at Rita's stable, the horses were just excited to see us as we were to see them! We learned their names and had a wonderful ride around the ranch. We explored the 3 floors of The East Hampton Marine Museum. There we learned about the history of whaling in the area, why it was important, and why the practices had to change. We even saw a huge whale skull! The local library put on a few events for us specifically, including a henna workshop and movie night complete with a snack station. We ended our week of fun with a picnic at Flander’s Duck.
This year we had a great time at Kelder's Farm!
We enjoyed our day petting and feeding farm animals, milking cows, finding our way through the corn maze, mini-golfing, pumpkin picking, and ending the day with a bumpy hay ride. The pillow bounce was a hit as usual. Can't wait for our next adventure in Kerhonkson, NY!
Sunken Forest is our favorite beach in the area because it's features an ecologically rare forest! We brought our buckets for the sand and our adventure hats for the scenic trail around the island. There was even a visitor center that displays the local wildlife.
We piled aboard The South Street Seaport Museum’s “Pioneer” for a ride around the New York Harbor. We learned about sailing, schooners, and the role they played in American history. We also got to meet some of the marine wildlife in the area. It was a great opportunity to learn something new about this awesome city we live in!
We enjoyed exploring on the beach, meeting animals in the nature center, horseback riding, and splashing around in the indoor pool. After the library in the area found out about our trip, they offered exciting events like a movie night and a henna tattoo workshop.
On our last night we enjoyed a campfire and s'mores.
As we were drove back to the city, many were already asking questions about the next trip to Montauk. We're all looking forward to next spring!
When the weather starts to feel frosty, you know the holiday season is right around the corner. What better way to warm up than by making gingerbread houses with friends! We all worked hard on our creations (and took a candy break here and there).
We had such a good time in Montauk this year! We went horse backing riding at Rita’s Stable. At the children’s museum, we learned about the animals that live in the area. We had a tour of the lighthouse, and even climbed to the top!
One day it was a little rainy, so we went to the library. We thought we’d dry off while reading a good book, but we met a jazz musician there that invited us to his big show! We didn’t just have a great time watching the show, we were in it! Once they saw how well behaved our group was, they insisted we get onstage and sing for the audience.
In between our big activities, we enjoyed time on the beach, campfires, and hikes.
All the children and parents can’t wait to go back next time!
It's always bound to be a fun snowy day when we visit Mt. Peter. Once we got situated with safety gear and heat pads for our toes, we hit the slopes. Some of us joined a lesson to learn the ropes, while others headed straight for the lifts. Aside from a lunch break, we had a full day on the mountain. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset on the lifts, and got a few more runs in before it got too late.
What a beautiful trip! With amazing scenery, over 6 hiking trails, water testing facility, and a whole lot more. The perfect place to learn, explore, connect, and get away! - PEEC was such a fun interactive experience for the kids. We hope to come back soon!
