Nature Camp is a mixed-ages nature-immersive summer program. Our mixed-ages group gives older children the opportunity to strengthen their social-emotional skills(tolerance, acceptance, kindness) and leadership skills. Younger students learn from watching, listening & interacting with older children. We have a non-competitive atmosphere encouraging group bonding & individual empowerment. I hope that the children develop & strengthen connections with each other and the natural world—our philosophy and model foster emotional intelligence, mindfulness, empathy & awareness. Children should be prepared for outdoor fun in sunshine, clouds & rain, except during extreme weather conditions; we are exclusively outdoors every day to enjoy exploration, play, and what nature has to offer. The Playschool certified *Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom is our base camp.
Activities may include:
*Exploring the natural beauty of Nantucket
*Learning about native plants & animals
*Rest, restore, and contemplate while lying in a hammock
*Creating forts & dens
*Lots of unstructured nature play, including messy mud & water play
Please note: *Children must be potty trained, use the bathroom, and dress independently. For safety reasons, children must stay with the group and fully participate in activities.
