Nature Camp

For ages 3.5 - 8
Hours: 8:30 - 2:15,  Monday - Friday,  part-time space depending on availability

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

*Nature games

*Gardening

*Creating forts & dens

*Nature Art

*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.
