Forest Day Camp

July 31 @ 9:00 am - August 4 @ 3:00 pm

$250

Join us for a week of forest adventure, life skill learning and outdoor fun at Forest Day Camp!  We will cover the essential order of forest life skills – shelter, water, fire, and food. The camp will also tap into our potential to connect with nature deeply. We will practice awareness through games that use all of our senses, and we will delve into “Jedi” and scout training and work on expanding our awareness potential and become truly connected. Experience the fun and powerful learning that happens when working with a team of experienced mentors.

Camp runs from 9 am to 3 pm.

Ages 8-11.

Tuition is $250

On Friday afternoon, parents are invited to join for the final hour to share in our fun and learning.

Continuing the Forest Camp tradition, this year we again welcome Coyote Mentor Nancye Good and Jason DiMartino, students of Tom Brown’s Tracker School and Children of the Earth Foundation, along with some other special guest instructors.
