Suffolk Downs is partnering with Outside the Box Learning Company to offer free programming for kids at The Track this summer. Join us in the Paddock from 10am – 12pm on Thursdays in August for hands-on science experiments, games, challenges, and more!
These events are free to attend but registration is required as staffing and supplies are limited to 40 children per event. Events are appropriate for children ages 3 and up and children must be accompanied by an adult throughout the event. Events are weather dependent, and registrants will be emailed if events are cancelled.
