The Hartshorn Summer Program is a day camp offered weekly during the summer at the Peabody Mill Environmental Center. In 2011, we celebrate our 22nd summer of fun! Classes are available for toddlers to 8th graders. Most classes are week-long sessions that run 9am-12pm. Extended day sessions are available 7:30am-5:30pm. Children love classes such as Cast Away - Fishing Fun, Circle of Life, Woodland Fairy Adventures, Wet & Wild, and Young Chemists.
The Peabody Mill Environmental Center (PMEC) is an environmental and science education center which abuts almost 600 acres of Joe English conservation land. Located at the end of Brook Road in Amherst, New Hampshire, the PMEC is directed by the Amherst Recreation Department. The mission of PMEC is to foster an awareness, understanding and appreciation of the natural world, by offering environmental, conservation, and science programs to all ages. PMEC strives to foster diligent stewardship of our environment so that future generations may inherit and continue to be inspired by the wonders of a protected and natural world. More information on this and other PMEC programs can be found on the Amherst Recreation Website.
