Jump into June!

HOP RIGHT IN!  

I can’t believe May is almost over!  I have missed a couple of blog posts, but I promise it has been for a VERY good reason!  I have been EXTREMELY busy getting ready to Jump into June!  June is an exciting month for us at Coastal Heritage Society.  We have a LOT going on, and just two of our exciting adventures are the grand opening of Savannah Children’s Museum’s Exploration Station on June 9th at 9 a.m., and Savannah Summer Camps beginning on June 11th!  Instead of a typical blog post this week, I want to make sure all of you have the fantastic details on these events 🙂

Savannah Children’s Museum’s

Exploration Station

People in Savannah have been asking about a local Children’s Museum for years, and it’s about to happen!  Savannah Children’s Museum’s Exploration Station is a 1-acre, 2-level outdoor exhibit space that encompasses all domains of learning, with a focus on imaginative play and exploration.

Every detail of this exhibit space has been designed to encourage meaningful learning through play. Educational standards and developmental growth have been the keystones for the design, construction, and finishing touches in every exhibit area.  Your family will have an opportunity to engage in all sorts of challenging and educational activities. Our team has been dreaming of this day, working long after the sun sets each night, making it a reality!

 

OPERATING HOURS

Tuesday-Sunday from 9 a.m. -2 p.m.,

Closed on Mondays for  resetting and maintenance of exhibits.

ADMISSION COST

$7.50 per person ages 1 and older.

PARKING & ADDRESS

The parking lot will be shared with  Georgia State Railroad Museum, which has the same physical address of

655 Louisville Rd, Savannah, GA 31401

Located just off  Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd where Liberty becomes Louisville Rd.

RIBBON CUTTING CEREMONY

Join us along with various special guests on June 9th, at 9am, for the GRAND OPENING ribbon cutting ceremony. The parking lot  will open at 8am.I hope you can come celebrate this wonderful addition to Savannah with us!

SPECIAL NOTE: Exploration Station is an outdoor venue. Casual dress encouraged, along with water bottles, sunscreen and good old Savanna bug spray. Your kids WILL get dirty, they WILL get wet, and above all, they WILL have fun!!

Look for our ad full of sneak preview pictures, in this Sunday’s Savannah Morning News!

I hope you can come!

Savannah Summer Camps

This year, Coastal Heritage Society is offering 3 fantastic Summer Camps for kids!

The first, Get on Board camp, is for our youngest campers and will be held at Georgia State Railroad Museum.

The second, The Great Train Exploration, is much like the first- but for older campers that are ready for a more in-depth railroading experience.

The third, Travel Through Time in Savannah camp, is also for our older campers and will have children traveling through time in our great city- from the Native Americans who once lived here, through the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, to modern day Savannah.

And since I know all of you are wondering, each camp will get an opportunity to enjoy SCM’s Exploration Station one afternoon during the week 🙂
