Saturdays at the Woods

Fun for the whole family!

Saturdays at the Woods is a creativity-fueled way for the entire family to start the weekend! Held at The Conservatory at Bethel Woods, the program offers sequential, arts based explorations that develop artistic skills and offer insight into the 1960s.  Each season shares an art-themed focus. SAW creates a place for parents to engage in creative exploration with their children, or to relax with fellow superstar parents while their 4 – 13 year olds are groovin’ on art, everyone’s imagination is inspired!


We run sessions for a wide array of age groups – including parents! By offering concurrent sessions, it is our goal to get the entire family involved!  Saturdays at the Woods is most fulfilling when attended regularly throughout the season. Arrive at 9:30am before the 10am start and share a light breakfast with other families for the morning session. Arrive at 1pm before the 1:30pm start and share a light lunch with other families for the afternoon session.
