At parents request, In 1984 Christine Altman put together a summer playgroup in Prospect Park. Each day this group of three through five year olds used their imaginations as we explored different areas of the Park. In thoughs days there were no fences around the woods. We would build with sticks, find tortises in the grass, cross streams on stones,catch frogs, play sports and games, read books, do art, get wet at the sprinklers, and travel to the beach once a week.
Park Slope spread the word and we continued to grow. Now older children joined and so did our activities. We now traveled outside the neighborhood utilizing the pools, museums, zoos, and fun places throughout the city.
Now we have grown into three divisions. We hire school buses to take us to many places around the city adding lessons in swimming, karate, gymnastics, with specialist in soccer,basketball, art and the performing arts. All are geared for the individual groups and ages. What has not changed is our hands-on approach to nature.
Our kids get plenty dirty!
We have had the pleasure watching many children grow up from little ones to college students. Many come back to work with us as counselors to help pass on the fun and learning experiences they had as children in Park Explorers.
