New! Imagine & Invent Camp

Nature is full of loose parts – from sticks to feathers to stones, we will design and build works of art and scientific inventions, using what we find here in our woods! A vine can be part of a catapult. A stick can turn into a magic wand. An old log can become a challenge course. From tiny creations to team building constructions, we will create together and be inspired every day by nature’s designs all around us.

Survivor Camp

Ages 7-11
You’re lost in the woods with no one to help! Do you have what it takes to survive? We’ll test our nature survival skills as we learn to build shelters, filter our own water, start a fire without a match, cook using the sun, and make a tasty snack from plants (and bugs!) here in our forest. We’ll all gather back together on Friday night to test our orienteering skills after dark, camp-out in our shelters, and enjoy a tasty campfire meal!
