Program to focus on ‘lost arts of childhood’

The Land Conservancy for Southern Chester County (TLC) wants to restore “the lost arts of childhood,” ranging from stone-skipping to fort-building.


During TLC's  'Free Time Adventures,' children aged 5 to 12 will have time to explore nature.

Toward that end, TLC is offering weekday nature programs for 5- to 12-year-old children over the summer break. Participants will explore the waters, meadows and woodlands of the 300-acre private Bucktoe Creek Preserve near Kennett Square.

Activities will be centered on bygone childhood pastimes, including hiking excursions, creek play, and searching for creatures, according to a TLC press release.

In addition, the children will experience one off-site outdoor field trip and have plenty of time for free play.

The programs, titled “Free Time Adventures,” will be held from July 12 through August 18 on every Tuesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The cost is $10 per day for TLC members and $20 per day for non-members. Space is limited; visit to learn more and to register.

TLC is a nonprofit based in southern Chester County, whose mission is to ensure the perpetual preservation and stewardship of open space, natural resources, historic sites, and working agricultural lands.
