NATURE PROGRAMS

Have Fun - Make Friends - Explore - Get Dirty - Use Your Imagination

 

YOUTH PROGRAMS

Our programs fall somewhere between traditional nature programs that focus on specific topics and free outdoor play. The classes are more about "Let's see what we can discover together" rather than "Here's what you should know."

They consist of loosely structured learning activities, fun games, and exploration time. As a group, the youth will pick the activities for the day. And we will always take time to talk about anything we come across while exploring - a salamander,

an interesting tree, animal bones in the creek, or maybe a snake.


We let nature direct our course!

explore nature, build confidence, and

make friends, all while having fun?

Classes meet once a week in 3 to 6-week

sessions from September to May.  Class

size is limited to 10 youth per class.

 

The continuing nature of these

classes allows youth to make friends while

they explore different local ecosystems. 

Each season brings its own interesting

discoveries and new ways to have fun.

Each program will have a designated

age-range, but these ages are flexible

to allow siblings of similar age to take

our programs at the same time.

Do you want your kids to get outside, explore nature, and have fun?  We have the camp for you!

Our camps are small; limited to 10 youth per week. We will be hiking, exploring, and playing on grass trails, in the woods, and in the creek.

 

With no set schedule, we plan the day together each morning.  This means each camp is different depending on the interests of the youth that week.

Camps for ages 6 - 12 will run from 9:00am – 1:00pm.

Camps for ages 4 & 5 will run from 9:00am - 12:00pm 

The lower age limit for each camp is firm.

All camps will be offered in 1-week blocks

Lunch should be brought from home. 

Sibling discounts apply.
