Summer Camp

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

Tadpoles: Ready to Explore! (Ages 4-5)

 

After free play and circle time, our youngest campers embark on a host of activities designed to stimulate the imagination, fine and gross motor skills, and social harmony: string games, bread baking, dip dyeing, watercolor painting, feeding the chickens, and more! A tasty snack delivers the energy needed for creek time at Pebble Beach!

 Crayfish: Snap into Action! (Ages 6-7)

 

Crayfish love to have fun-filled adventures! Campers gather each morning in the Sheep’s Pen, run, play games, and investigate their natural surroundings. They then begin their day’s project such as tie-dyeing, working with yarn, sculpting with clay, baking dragon bread, and gardening. The group will go to our magical creek at Old Man’s Tree every day to explore and play in the shallow waters.
