At our Earth Scouts camps, 7-11 year old students will learn to live in harmony with nature as they play sensory awareness games, follow the trails of wild creatures through the forest, forage for wild food and medicine, practice earth-based skills, hear stories, sing songs, and have some good ole muddy wild adventures in the woods! Our students always return home more connected and truly alive!
Earth Scouts Camps run from 9:30 am – 3:30 pm and are open to children ages 7-11.
