Fort Hunter, NY – Schoharie Crossing announces a new summer program series called, The Summer Supplemental Knowledge Enhancement and Wellness Lab or Summer SKEWL.   This series is intended to bring educational and recreational opportunities meant to enhance experiences at the site.  Each week the historic site and New York State Park will feature programs that get your mind and body moving. 

The series will run from July 17th to August 16th on Wednesdays and Fridays. 

The program is intended for all ages 10 and above. Anyone under the age of 18 needs a parent or guardian with them. Participants are encouraged to dress according to the weather and bring a bag lunch for a picnic on site after or before each program.  Some Summer SKEWL programs are in partnership with other organizations and therefore may have a change in time or location.
