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.

Saturday Trail Crew (Ages 8-18) 

Children/Teen volunteers are welcome to help with trail clean-up the first Saturday each month. 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. REGISTER

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
