Our camp programs provide a safe, fun space that nurtures a child's desire to be outdoors! Every day will include activities based on the needs of the gardens (what needs to be planted, weeded or harvested), and exploring the forest on the property. Our time is spent ENTIRELY outdoors. Weather appropriate clothing is required.
9:00 AM- 4:00PM
PD Day Camp: $50/day
Summer Camp: $60/day or $250/week
Our days are dynamic, depending on the ever-changing natural environment of the farm and forest (evidence of animals, emergence of new flowers, what needs to be planted, weeded or harvested, insect activity, effects of weather on the land etc.) We will explore the gardens, learn about biodiversity, how to plant seeds, and what plants need to thrive, while working hands-on in the garden. We will also spend time exploring the forest on-site, building forts, and playing in the ever-popular 'Mud Kitchen'.
The educators will provide opportunities for outdoor skill development, co-operative games, crafts, and LOTS of movement. The day's activities begin and end in our gathering space where we will share stories, songs, poems, or plays. Educators also add to the day's learning by introducing provocations such as simple tools and loose parts used for building, planting and creating. We spend all our time outdoors, rain or shine! In the case of inclement weather, we have a safe, indoor space to take shelter. Campers are to bring a litterless lunch with 2 healthy snacks and 2 full water bottles to fuel our bodies for the day.
Join us for growing, exploring, and fun!
