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!

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.
