Spring Break Nature Camps
In early Spring nature is exploding with life. The birds are nesting, our favorite edible plants are young and tender, and the baby fawns are hiding in the underbrush. This is a fantastic time to be outside because there is never enough time to see, touch and smell everything.
Whole Earth Nature School in Eugene presents spring break day camps for kids. We try to re-imagine what camps can be. We still value games, activities and storytelling but those things are only used as vehicles for profound personal experience. We believe strongly that kids today are sorely lacking the wonder, freedom and sense of adventure that their parents or grandparents had. Our experienced instructors safely guide kids on the trail of wild animals, use mud to camouflage their faces and move invisibly through the woods, and introduce kids to the nutritious weeds and wild plants that grow all around us.
Each camp will use creative play and exploration to teach the fundamentals of nature awareness through development of the five senses, and observation of plants, birds and mammals. Yet every day we will live a new story and create a unique experience. While we have in mind specific goals for each day, we custom tailor every session depending on what the children uncover in nature, as well as what individual interests the children bring to each group.
All 2013 Spring Break camps will be held at Oak Hill School
