Our camp is warm, playful, and instructive. We foster deep norishing connections for the children. Connections between your child and the children in our group; between your child and the beauty and joys of Nature; and between your child and our loving, supportive guides.
We are careful not to over schedule the children. We honor the natural rhythyms of the child and the day; the in and the out breath. A harmony of excitement and relaxation is sought through a balanced flow of free play, adventure, story time, structtured games, crafts, snack, and circle times.
What makes our camp so unique and special is the size and flow of our group. We keep our ratio small: one counselor per three to four children. We also cap our group size at 8 children per group. In this way, the feel seen and understood. We develop the flow of the day and structure of activities to meet the individual needs of the children in the group.
We integrate mindfulness and movement activities into everything we do. The camp is developed to support the social and emotional growth of the children. We integrate our mindfulness based social and emotional learning curriculum. We integrate many activities that promote sensory integration and emotional regulation.
