Summer Camp Session 2: Wilderness Scouts

Our second week focuses on wilderness skills, preparing youth to be at home in nature as campers practice primitive shelter-building, fire-making, mapping and orienteering.

Register here for Acorn Camp 2016! 

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.
