Free Time Fun Outdoors at Elachee

Interesting Activities for Children and Teens

Time at Elachee plants seeds of creativity and know-how for the next generation of Earth’s caretakers, whether as part of an extracurricular field trip, celebrating a birthday or volunteering to earn community service hours.

Junior Trail Crew (Ages 8-18) 

Children/Teen volunteers are welcome to help with trail clean-up as part of a scheduled group. This is a great way to bring together school or civic clubs, scouts or church youth groups for a day of community service. Anyone under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult. We’ll supply the tools and training. You bring water, lunch, gloves and rain gear. This is a great way for families to volunteer and help maintain Elachee’s 12 miles of hiking trails throughout the Chicopee Woods Nature Preserve. Send Us A Message to get started.

Small Group Programs (PreK-12th Grade) 

Elachee is an ideal field trip for Boy and Girl Scout troops, daycare centers and home school associations. Choose one of Elachee’s age-appropriate School Programs. Or, we will modify an existing School Program to fulfill Scout badge requirements or to address a certain topic of interest. SCHEDULE YOUR PROGRAM

Children’s Nature Birthday Parties (Ages 4-12) 

If animals or adventure grab your child’s interest, create one-of-a-kind memories with an Elachee Nature Birthday Party. For children ages 4 to 12 years. LEARN MORE
