Friends of The Forest Summer Camps

Do you have a wild child at home? If your kiddo loves getting outside, playing and exploring in nature, then our Friends of The Forest Summer Camp is just for them! Our summer program is designed to allow children to explore nature, develop new friendships, test their limits and play outside in a safe and supervised manner.


Each day the kids are able to choose our route and the activities they’d like to participate in as a group. While learning will be unstructured, science tools and art materials will be supplied on a daily basis for deeper investigation and observation of nature. Nature Journaling is optional and an extra, fun way to connect with nature.

Our camps are being offered twice a week from June 6 – July 28 from 9am – 3pm. We will meet at different open spaces and private lands and immerse ourselves in nature all day long! Most camp days will be exclusively outdoors, so please prepare your child/children accordingly. Activities may include hiking, art projects, nature journaling, nature studies, bird watching, shelter-building and more! This program is ideal for children in grades K-5th.
