In our final week, campers become champions for the earth through exploration of local ecology and learning empowering ancestral skills. Campers will protect plants and animals by building habitat and oak tree structures. Young defenders will learn to care for the land and its inhabitants through play and exploration.

At Acorn Camp, our outdoor nature connection summer camp for youth, kids spend the day outdoors, engaging their senses and learning about nature through playful activities.
We combine adventures, games, art, music and storytelling to engage children on all levels. Activities include animal tracking, nature arts and crafts projects, preparing herbal first aid remedies, making fire by friction, making delicious snacks from the organic garden, visiting farm animals, building primitive shelters, music, storytelling, bird language, plant and animal identification, and more – all in a fun, safe, and age-appropriate environment. Classes are adapted to the interests and pace of the youth, building on their excitement and curiosity.
