Tryon TREKKERS After School
Play outside every day after school! Tryon Trekkers explore nature and culture using STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) enrichment through applied, hands-on activities and games. Trekkers explore nearby parks and green spaces and take a field trip to Tryon Creek State Natural Area.
Building on 40 years of nature education programming, through its Nature Day Camp and School Field Trips, Friends of Tryon Creek developed Tryon Trekkers to engage a new audience after school. Tryon Trekkers is currently available at Markham Elementary School and Jackson Middle School through the SUN (Schools Uniting Neighborhoods) program.
