Winter Break Camps

Winter Break Nature Camps 2016

The weather outside isn’t quite as frightful as you might think. Winter break Nature Camps with Whole Earth Nature School are a great opportunity to cure that cabin fever and play outside a little. All our winter break Nature Camps offer great opportunities to learn about nature in the winter. Learn all sorts of valuable outdoor skills such as how to safely light a campfire in the winter, how to identify plants and trees in the wintertime, and how to create warm, dry shelter. Plus, thanks to our convenient Dorris Ranch location we will have the opportunity to enjoy some warm wild plant tea by the woodstove in the barn.

Winter Break 2016-2017 will be open for registration on November 18th!
