As we roll into September, Chewonki is feeling the full shift in the seasons: dry air, cool nights, and the return of our Outdoor Classroom programs.
This week, we have a “full house” on Chewonki Neck with more than 150 students attending from four schools, Applewild School, Friends Academy, The Pennfield School, and Providence Country Day School. Welcome!
Students and chaperones will be using every inch of Chewonki Neck, as well as our island campsites. While they are here, students will learn canoeing and camping skills, expore different biomes, and take part in a variety of ecology, natural history, and science lessons (including our new Starlab).
