it is open to all children, ages 4 through 12.
philosophy of Open Fields is that children are naturally eager to
explore and discover and learn, and that every natural activity of

Failure to master something the first time or failure to
be "first" must never mean disgrace, but must mean simply that it
is time to attack the problem or skill again, with humor,
determination, and courage.
