No School Day Camps and Holiday Break Camps will be themed! See Themes in the Enrollment section below

When we meet at 9am, we'll begin with a group game, group question, or community activity to start us off all on the same page for our time together. Some examples of opening activities include Fox Tail Tag, Sneaking games, Sit spots, Nature Museum, and group nature mystery time.

We'll then move into our topic or main activity for the day. All days will be immersive, interactive, hands-on, inquiry-based, and hold the goal of nature connection. Depending on the week's theme, some camp activities include: stealth and natural camouflage, wildlife tracking and trailing, wild edibles and plant explorations, archery and atlatls, animal adaptations exploration, fire making, shelter building, birds and bird language, making potions and medicines with plants, fiber arts and plant dyes, carving/knife safety, and more!

We'll learn about our theme for the Camp through hands-on activities and interactive "mini-lessons." We'll also take breaks for snacks and lunch, stories, free nature exploration, and lots of sensory games.

We'll always set a goal to close with a Story of the Day, where folks can share highlights or learned facts from the day.
