Summer Camps 2019

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

In addition to Earth Warriors Nature Club…
we have a couple new summer camps this season, and of course all your favorites!

Our classes are full of creative play, exploration and adventure!  These are high quality camps, personalized specifically for your child’s strengths and challenges.

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.

  • 10am-3pm each day
  • Intimate class sizes
  • 100% outdoor (rain or shine)
  • Children bring their own lunch & snack

 

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


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…fairy house building, tending the plants, brewing our own tea from plants we harvest.  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 the bounty of nature to make and 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!

July 30-Aug 1
Tuesday-Thursday: 10am-3pm
Ages 5-12, $150


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!

We have two dates available for this camp this year, due to demand!  Each week will be unique as we will be working with the plant medicine as it is ripens through the season, so feel free to register for both or just one.

July 16-18

Empowerment Camps for Girls!

For girls and those identifying as girls.  We will be building fires, building friendships, exploring the land and our own strengths and challenges, tending the gardens and our own hearts.  We may be barefoot, we will likely get our hands dirty, and we will definitely be playing nature games together!  This is a nurturing space to explore our self-expression.
