Learning in the Woods is our multi-age, free play in the forest program.
We are unique from other programs in that we offer a large block of unstructured time for kids to pursue their own interests. We have some structure and routines to promote connection such as our check-in meetings. Children usually play or take part in “offerings” which can range from building a fort, nature walk, bird watching, painting…the list is as varied as the people participating. Children eat their snack from home when they are hungry, there is no set snack time.
Parents are encouraged to volunteer, or, like other recreational programs, be available for immediate pick-up (should we need to cancel due to changes in weather).
Weekdays the sessions run for kids under 6 years and homeschooling families. Saturdays, PA Days, and camp offerings are open to all kids, especially those in school.
Learning in the Woods Fall, Winter, and Spring Rates are $250 including HST per child attending one 2.5 hour session a week, running 10 weeks. You are welcome to sign up for more than one session per week.
Camps and PA Days are for children who are 4-12 years old. You can sign up for mornings, afternoons, or both. Before and after care is provided at an additional cost. Camps (summer camps or March Break camp) are $125 for 5 half days or $250 for 5 full days. Before and after care is available at $12 per hour. PA Day Camp is $25 for a half day, $55 for a full day (including lunch care).
