GO WilMa!

GO WilMa! is an exciting and entertaining outdoor summertime adventure that encourages children in the Malvern area (no residency requirements) to explore the natural and historic treasures of our area through a series of scavenger hunts. Kids and their families participate on their own schedule throughout the summer.  Children are automatically signed up for GO WilMa! when they register for the National Summer Reading Program at Malvern or Paoli Library.

GO WilMa! combines parks and recreation, health and wellness, reading, and lots of fresh air fun.  Exploring the natural and historic treasures of our area also brings families, friends, and our community together, lifting spirits and delivering smiles.
