Tours are customizable to ages and interests of your children. If your kid is a dinosaur fan and loves to run around - choose a tour that includes plenty of out door play and a stop at The Academy of Natural Sciences. Maybe your child is artistic and wants to see the art museum or galleries and do a little sketching of their own. If all your kid wants to do is run and play, I’ll sneak in some sightseeing between the active play options. Tours are custom designed for the ages and interests of your children, paced responsively to your kids’ needs. Parents and caregivers can join in for part or all of the tour, or feel free to send the kids off while you work, attend a conference or have childfree time.
Artist, mom, pre-school and after-school teacher, lifelong Philadelphian. I started creating informal vacation camps for my daughter and her friends. We had a lot of fun inventing themes around their interests, mixing up our days with play, eating, art projects and visiting some interesting museums and hidden gems around the city. We keep it moving and follow the lead of the kids. I have all current clearances needed for working with children. Tours are intended to provide a fantastic child-centered experience while adults are otherwise engaged, but you are welcome to tag along for part or all of the experience.
