Forest Babies at Pony Power, Mahwah

Offered for spring sessions and half-day summer sessions. Children and their caregivers can experience the wonders of farm life at Pony Power! They'll interact with ponies, sheep, goats and chickens, and discover what’s growing in the farm's half-acre garden. It's a rare opportunity to disconnect from technology and be present in nature. Spring sessions run weekly from April-June. Week-long summer sessions take place July through August. Sibling discounts are available.
