Summer Day Camps
Children won’t even know they are learning problem solving skills, life sciences and natural history as they play games in the forest and engage both mind and body. Our mentors help WoodSprites to trust that they are intelligent and capable people so that they learn awareness. Your kids will come home tired and dirty, with smiling faces and stories from camp.
It is our goal to provide a place for youth to meet strong mentors, build lasting bonds of friendship, learn valuable life skills, connect with the wilds, and build strength of character.
