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!

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.
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.
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.
