Weaving Earth is excited to offer two weeklong summer camps for youth, ages 6 to 14! If you’re new to Weaving Earth, welcome! And if you are already familiar with us, welcome back. 🙂 

As educators, we are passionate about working with young people. In all of our youth programs, the local ecosystem is the classroom. The woods, creeks, meadows, hills, plants, and animals come magically alive through exploration, interaction, and storytelling. We value curiosity as a guide for growth, and we strive for a cultural environment in which the youth learn to collaborate and support each other. As a part of this cultural environment, we aim to nurture a commitment to equity and eco-social justice.

These one-week camps will emphasize play and exploration. It’s a time to unwind, unplug, and replenish ourselves through close contact with the wonders of summer!

I. OUR APPROACH TO EDUCATION

We organize our curriculum into four interrelated pillars. While we present these pillars as distinct, we want to emphasize that they are fluid and always interconnected in practice. That fluidity is symbolized by the water at the center. To learn more about how we approach education with kids, visit our Wild Tenders page.

III. PRICING AND FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

We offer a sliding scale tuition for these Summer Camps.

$350
< ---------------- >
$450

The true cost per participant for this camp is approximately $390. We offer this range because we know that some families can afford to pay a bit more and some need to pay a bit less. Our hope is that this will average out in a way that helps us to meet our organizational needs. 

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

If your family isn’t able to pay on this sliding scale, please indicate that in your application and we will do our best to meet your needs. For questions about financial assistance, please contact Kayla Douglass.

Donations

If your family is able to pay beyond the sliding scale and would like to make a donation to our scholarship fund, you can indicate that in your application — we would be grateful for your support! Any money you contribute above $450 will be considered a tax-deductible donation and we will send you a donation receipt for your records.
