Each day will be filled with outdoor nature activities and adventures. Activities may include: visits to different outdoor parks an nature preserves; flora an fauna observation + identification; exploring different ecosystems, creating sand sculptures; swimming; nature journaling; watercolor painting; environmental stewardship; nature meditations; eco arts; fun and games; naturalist challenges;  and much, much more! When children quiet down in nature, they can tap into their natural curiosity. At camp we will slow down and use all of the senses to experience the energies of the natural world. By practicing mindfulness, campers will learn to cultivate a sense of peace, awe and wonder.

*We go “light rain” or shine. See our weather policy FAQs  page. In the case of light rain, we lend you an umbrella; we simply take cover and wait it out. Intermittent rain won’t stop the fun. No matter the weather, we will hold camp. We have picnic shelters and/or some local indoor nature venues where we can take cover.  ALL SALES FINAL/NO REFUNDS.


SAFETY MEASURES: We care about the health and safety of those participating in our nature experiences. The bus is sanitized between each tour. We often ride with windows partially cracked open for some airflow, like an open-air tram (weather permitting). Prior to opening day of camp, both parents (and any other adults who may drop off/pick up from camp) will need to attend a one hour mandatory orientation meeting. Sign-in and sign-out procedures will keep your child safe. Regarding our sick policy, please stay away if your child is not feeling well or has a fever. Do not bring sick children to camp. Children will be required to wear cross-the-shoulder seat belts at all times while the bus is moving. After all registrations are finalized, we will send out a list of participant allergies; please do not put these items into your child’s lunch.

We ALSO have summer “camp” opportunities for ages 1-7  (TINKERGARTEN “Camp”) and we are super excited to be offering camp this summer for ages 13-15 (June 2024) for 16 lucky teens!
