SUMMER CAMPS 2017

SUMMER CAMPS 2017

“This place is awesome! Can we come back here?” ~Neil, Age 9

Earth WarriorsIn addition to Earth Warriors Nature Club…
we are excited to announce four summer camps this season…including one new one!

Our classes are full of creative play, exploration and adventure!

Intimate class size allows us to facilitate the development of skills such as teamwork and communication, thankfulness, self confidence, patience and flexibility, problem-solving, and respect for nature.

These skills are woven invisibly into each of our summer day camps through storytelling, active questioning, engaging nature activities, art and games.

  • Children ages 5-12
  • 5:1 child to adult ratios
  • 100% outdoor (rain or shine)

“This is way better than playing video games at home!” ~Maia, Age 8

Each camp day is from 10am-3pm, with the children bringing their own lunch and snack.


The Enchanted Woodland

What if we could find magic around every corner?

Join us for three days of playful exploration through the woods of Bluebird Hill…treasure hunts, notes from the fairies and elves, storytelling, fairy house building, and tea brewing from plants we harvest from the land. Each day is filled with wonder, magic, and creativity!

Earth Artists: Creating with Nature

Three days of cultivating our creativity, making art at every turn. Using nature to make art, using nature to inspire art.

All great naturalists and great artists pay attention to the details that are hidden inside ordinary things. The forms of art that we explore in this camp are chosen to help create community and bring us closer to nature: making pigment from berries, working with the clay from the land, collage with found materials, and more. Let imagination, creativity and natural wonder lead the way!

Medicine Makers

As every budding herbalist knows, there is nothing more empowering than finding the medicine we need right from the plants in our own backyards.

In these three days, we’ll be practicing reverence with harvesting and preparing our own remedies from the land, and learning safe ways to handle and consume them.

And of course, we’ll have plenty of time for earth connecting games and play!

The Peaceful Warriors

What does it take to be deeply connected with the world around us? And how can we peacefully stand for the things that we care about most?

In these three days, we will meet and connect with our animal totem, learn how the medicine wheel can help guide us through challenging times, and create community with our new friends…all while exploring the land together and playing games!
