Get your kids outside and help them activate their bodies and senses through exciting adventures in the forest! They will move silently and fluidly, learn the art of camouflage, and mimic wild animals. They’ll be free to run, jump, and engage in wild play in the woods, while learning safe and easy Nature Parkour techniques.

Campers will learn to calm their mind like a Jedi, move in rhythm with the forest like Aragorn, and explore the world as a Ranger!  

Recognized by ParentMap as the best nature camp!

Campers will enjoy:

  • Practicing stealth camouflage techniques to move unseen and unheard through the woods
  • Learning to move like a wild animal
  • Using imaginative play
  • Practicing Nature Parkour exercises to build strength and flexibility
  • Training in internal martial arts such as Tai Chi
  • Honing their skills through missions and challenges
  • Running around in the woods with new friends!

  • A 1:9 staff-student ratio
  • On-site director and volunteers who offer additional instructor support
  • Staff trained as Coyote Mentors, a widely-respected educational philosophy developed at the Wilderness Awareness School
