For ages 4-11 Learning, exploring, building, and discovering our connection to nature through crafts, gardening, forest play, and animal care, each three-week session focuses on a theme: June 20 - July 8: Little Bear Theater Arts and Puppetry Camp July 18 - August 5: Earth, Air, Fire, and Water: Nature’s Art and Science Camp August 8 – 26: Pioneer Days Camp. Families may register for 1, 2, or 3 weeks of a session. Beautifully situated among apple orchards, forests, and fields along the Kingsbury Branch of the Winooski River on our 55-acre campus, every day begins and ends with a circle, songs, and a story gathering in our Sioux teepee around the cooking fire. A project-based activity based on the session’s theme is led each morning and afternoon by our guides.
