Spring into the Forest – April 24th, 2020

With Tara Carpenter and Jessica McGregor

April 24, 2020

Let’s explore the forest for all the fun we can find. We will be hiking, tree climbing and
create nature inspired crafts. The forest is exploding with life in the spring and we will go
on a treasure hunt to find what is springing to life.

Have the day off and come play with us….outdoors. Our camps are forest school inspired by having children immersed in outdoor self-directed play and educational activities all day! Your little ones will be guided on their adventure by highly qualified passionate leaders that are trained in Wilderness First Aid.

Ages 5-11 $50.00 per child – 2+ children $45.00 each
