Designed for children between the ages of 2-10, Hidden Hollow is nestled in a two-acre dry kettle hole—a glacially formed depression common to Cape Cod. A variety of play areas and monthly themes provides a stimulating and beautiful outdoor setting for discovery, learning and play. Children can climb stepping stumps, navigate log balance beams, construct forts, create nature-inspired art, build with blocks, dig in sand, experiment with water, make music, engage in sensory investigation with plants, and more.
Hidden Hollow is of the first certified Nature Explore Classrooms in New England and is dedicated to reconnecting children to nature, stimulating curiosity and creativity, and encourages learning through the freedom to explore and interact with nature. Children are exposed to STEM ideas as they experiment with a multitude of science, technology, engineering, and math concepts. Play and experimentation that happens here helps children understand physical laws of nature, as well as promoting teamwork and dramatic play.
