FOREST EXPLORERS CAMP
Does your little one love playing outside?
Come track animals, munch on wild edibles, and call out at circling hawks this summer! We won't miss a teachable moment as we explore the natural world together and wonder at the magic all around.
Each day will include a sharing circle, story, and time to hike and explore. We'll use developmentally appropriate games and activities to enrich our learning about the day's theme. From frog eggs to fox tails, we'll be having fun and making new connections with every step!
Let's create, touch, watch, get quiet, be loud, move, build, climb, smell, and most importantly, DISCOVER. Who knows where a shimmery spider web or incredible egret sighting could lead us for the day?
Your child will walk away with knowledge about local flora and fauna, new friendships, and an inspired sense of connection to nature!
