Haw River Learning Celebration (Bynum)

September 23, 2023 @ 8:00 am September 29, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

The Haw River Learning Celebration is a field trip to the Haw River for fourth graders each fall. Since we began the program in 1990, over 48,000 students have participated. Schools attend one of our three locations in Chatham, Alamance, and Rockingham counties and spend a day doing activities along the river, enjoying a picnic lunch and puppet show. The Learning Celebration this year will take place between September 23rd-October 13th.

Be a “Floater” or a “Sticker”: There are 2 main volunteer positions. Floaters spend the entire program day (Tuesdays – Fridays) with the same group of about 10 kids. They walk the kids from station to station. If you’ve never volunteered with us before then the floater position is perfect for you! Stickers stay at one station and teach that station for the entire day. Sticker positions are experienced volunteers and require training from year to year on Sundays and Mondays during the program week. Can’t help out during the week but still want to contribute your time? Sign up for Saturdays when we set up camp! Many hands make light work! You can sign up through the google form below.
