The Enchanted Forest - June

Forests everywhere are enchanted if you look deep enough into your imagination! This week children will fully engage their imaginations and jump into the enchanted stories from fairy tales and legends set in famous forests like Winny the Pooh’s “The Hundred Acre Wood”  or the enchanted forest of Little Red Riding Hood. 

The children will bring these stories to life as the magic transforms their real life into legend! Imagine frolicking as did Winny the Pooh or skipping to Grandma's as Little Red Riding Hood. Whatever adventure awaits, children will completely immerse themselves in nature and make new friends and challenge themselves. Plenty of time each day is set aside to play with friends; whether in a game, exploring the forest or swinging in the hammock.

Mad Scientist

When you have a desire to save the world and create a mess with an adventurous spirit, anything is possible. Calling all scientists who want to see what it takes to invent the next anti-viral solution, the next miracle food, the latest water filtration devise or the next space ship. Children will use all things natural to save the world while making things bubble, smoke, ooze and fly.  And yes, even scientists get time to play!.

Forest Survival

Imagine a world with no Target, no Safeway and no electronics; a place where families survive off the land! Sound foreign and scary? Or maybe romantic and fun? Your children will embrace such a world and learn how to survive the most basic survival scenarios; how to design and build a shelter, discover, collect and purify water, identify and gather food, create and build useful tools and learn how to track and navigate so they don't get lost. Your children will "own" the forest and have a blast creating their own settlements all while having fun with friends and building confidence, self-reliance, and creativity as they adventure in the forest.

 

Plenty of time each day is set aside to play with friends; whether in a game, exploring the forest, or swinging in the hammock.

Barefoot & Beyond

Grab a bucket and kick your shoes off for a mucky, dirty, highly sensory oriented forest adventure. This journey will test children’s physical skills as they explore the messy ingredients of the forest. Mud, soil, water, leaves and trees will not go untouched. Let the forest be your playground and the fun begin! Climb a tree, build a fort, or a fishing pole - the sky is the limit to what imaginative play and fun awaits these voyagers! 

Plenty of time each day is set aside to play with friends; whether in a game, exploring the forest or swinging in the hammock!

Forest Friends

Does your child LOVE looking for frogs, bugs, salamanders, Oh my! Has your child ever asked for a pet raccoon, snake, tree frog, bear, or coyote? Well now is the chance for you to say, YES! Children of all ages will have a blast adopting a new forest friend and spending the week adventuring through nature with their new "pet” as they look for wildlife. Children will go hiking, tracking and investigating as they learn about the forest and the animals that live amongst the trees.

 

These “Jr Naturalists” will also have plenty of time each day to play with friends; whether in a game, exploring the forest or swinging in the hammock.
