“Ranger Time” Capstone Event
Saturday, May 18, 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
A Program for Preschoolers
“Kinderhook” translates from Old Dutch to English as Children’s Corner.
An enjoyable opportunity for youngsters to learn about their local history. Following three successful programs this winter, National Park Service rangers are offering a capstone experience to pre-schoolers at Martin Van Buren’s post-presidency home.
Please join us for an Open House where children and their chaperones may participate in several educational stations, including:
A craft station about Van Buren’s farm, highlighting the sheep
Fifteen-minute mini-tours of the first floor of the mansion, offered at 11:30, 12:30, and 1:30
A self-guided scavenger hunt of the grounds
Lawn games for the whole family
**The program is designed for children ages three to five, but all are welcome. Adult attendees are encouraged to participate.
