Summer Camp

SUMMER CAMP 2023 (7).png

All days of camp run 8:30am-3pm. 
Campers will be divided into groups based on age. 
Campers will spend the day with counselors and assistants all over 18 years of age. Staying with these peers and counselors, camp days include activities and projects with the lead teaching artist along with games, creek exploration, crafting, singing, and playing on our 20-acre campus.
Campers will bring snack and lunch daily from home.

My daughter] loved the chance to play in the woods and the stream—so back-to-nature and so different from what is ordinarily available to her. She also made girlfriends more easily than ever before and was happy about that.” —Camp parent

"I loved that the day and activities were structured, but not overly so. Children were allowed to express their creativity and imagination. Opportunities to wade in the creek and bake bread in a wood-fired oven made for memorable experiences.” —Camp parent

“Safe but unstructured exploration is the perfect balance to his very structured school life.”
—Camp parent

Camp Sessions for Children 4-12


Session 1: Color Cascade, June 26-June 30

Cost: $520


Teaching artist Lindsey Stephenson is bringing us beyond the rainbow with a look at how color abounds.


For this week of camp children will explore color in nature and the world around them. They will experience and experiment with color in different mediums and be invited to keep a color journal for the week. They will play and dance with the moods evoked by colors. Projects to take home like weavings and water colors will abound, and campers will also work together to make installations to enjoy at camp. At the end of the week families are invited to come explore the cacophony of color their campers have made with a walk through of our forest gallery.



Session 2: From the Garden Week A, July 3-7 

(Camp is not in session on Tuesday, July 4th)

Cost: $420

Teaching artist Valerie Leone will highlight the joy of growing and preparing food with each other from earth to table. 


During From the Garden Campers will spend a part of every day learning about different culinary traditions, cooking techniques, gathering, gardening and harvesting. Almost all day will be spent outside. Activities on offer include:

  • Outdoor cooking in the garden

  • Oven baking

  • Decorative arts for the table

Session 3: From the Garden Week B, July 10-14

Teaching artist Valerie Leone will offer a similar program to Week A. If your child attends both weeks, there will be new offerings and they can further their skills from Week A. If your child just joins us for Week B, a lovely week outdoors and in the garden will be had!



Session 4: Friends and Dwellings, July 17-21

Cost: $520

Teaching artist Lindsey Stephenson invites campers to build and create homes away from home.


Our world is full of creatures big and small, magical and mundane. This week campers will think about the spaces those friends inhabit and try their hand at building their own! They will build and decorate fairy houses, dams, nests, forts, and other structures to share with each other and their families at the end of the week. Some structures will be tested, some structures will be beautiful, and some may be inhabited by creatures! 


Session 5: Enchanted Forest: Circus Arts, July 24-August 4

Cost: $1,045


Teaching Artist Devon Light-Wills., formerly of The Circus Place, will help campers discover the exciting world of Circus Arts in this two-week session. (Campers do need to attend both weeks, so they have time to build new skills successfully)


Campers will step into the “Enchanted Forrest” where creativity, collaboration, and community will guide their circus journey to learn new skills, make lasting friendships, and gain a newfound confidence in making the impossible, possible. This two-week camp will culminate in a performance for family and friends! Performance is optional based on comfort level and will not affect your campers’ experience if they choose to sit out the show.

Age-appropriate circus skills include:

  • Juggling and manipulations (hula hoops, plate spinning, feather balance, diabolo and flower sticks)

  • Balance (stilt walking, tightwire, and pipe balance)

  • Acrobatics (group pyramids, tumbling, and circus jump rope)

  • Performance and Improv!
