Little Acorns

The mission of the Dahlem Little Acorns Nature Preschool is to provide an environment for children to explore, create, imagine, learn and grow through hands-on activities and experiences; to promote social, emotional and cognitive skills; and to instill a lifelong love, respect and understanding of nature.

Dahlem Membership

As a member you receive free or reduced admission to public programs, advanced registration and reduced rates for Outdoor Adventure Summer Day Camp, and a 10% discount on purchases in the Nutshell Gift Shop.

Adventure Day Camp

Children and the outdoors go hand-in-hand. Or at least they used to. Today too many children spend their childhood indoors watching a screen. Studies show that getting kids outside not only improves their physical well-being, it also works wonders on their psychological health, improves their academic skills, and even helps those with ADHD.
