My daughter does not particularly like camps but by the end of her first day she was
dragging me into the forest to eat an edible plant and couldn't stop chatting about her daily
activities. The quality of teaching is superb and we will definitely be coming back next summer!

-Mother of 10 year old camper

My kiddo had a fantastic time. If she could have stayed in camp for two or three or ten weeks she would have. Thanks, everyone.
-Jenny T. (Mother of 7 year old camper)

Everyday when I picked him up my son was muddy, overflowing with anecdotes from
the day, and bone tired from hiking around all day long. I love his newfound sense of excitement
about the wonders of nature!

-Karen (Mother of a 7 year old happy camper)

My child discovered courage and resilience in spending time with skilled mentors and
new friends in the outdoors this summer. Picking him up each day, he was joyful and at peace.
After the great experience we had, we are continuing his adventure in the year-long program.

-S.C. (Mother of 11 year old camper)

Wilderness Awareness is truly the highlight of the summer for my kiddo. He comes home
curious and eager to share what he learned during the day. Some days he wants to retrace their
steps and show me all that he learned. Thanks for the adventures!

-Jessica (Mother of 7 year old camper)
