Stepping Stones ~ Camp for Ages 5 and 6!

It is now time to have little Living Earth-lings join us for Summer Camp!

Do you long to have your younger child connected and at home in the natural world? We’ve been having parents ask for years, so here it is!

Come join the Stepping Stones for fun, first-hand adventures in nature, with caring nature mentors. Our experienced nature mentors will guide your child into the woods to see through the animals eyes and move through the land, nibble some tasty wild edible plants, wander streams and explore survival skills in a fun, safe way. Children become patterned upon what their senses take in and our day will be full sensory awareness with nature as our guide to connecting with each other and the beautiful forest.
