About Our Camps:

Our camps are dedicated to providing children with fun and magical experiences outside. Please see our Founding Principles page to learn more about our teaching style and philosophy. We keep our group sizes small (max 5 students per teacher)  and our curriculum tailored to the children's interests, speed of learning, and passion. The Outdoors is such a wonderful playground for children to connect with their local environment, develop kinesthetic awareness and skills, interact with real, living materials, learn group communication and collaboration, and experiment with their creativity! Not to mention the healthy movement of our bodies. We love it!

*Truly inclement weather will lead to other enriching indoor activities, as the safety and wellbeing of the children is our first priority.
