Earth Discovery Camp

Our Earth Education Camp offers an interactive, experience that aims to strengthen environmental stewardship, teamwork, leadership, social emotional learning and survival and life skills from our greatest teacher, Nature (in addition to our wonderful earth educators). Student passions and interests are supported and heavily influence the flow of our day. Students are encouraged to be curious, get dirty, experience unstructured time in nature and learn to interact with, and understand more fully their role in the natural world. Opportunities abound to learn hands-on skills like carpentry, medicinal herbs, earth skills and ecological crafts in the company of friends and expert adults. Our students have tracked animals in the brush, built crawfish traps and cooked caught crawfish in a created-by-friction fire, carved wood utensils and learn to practice meditation in age and developmentally appropriate manners. Projects and adventures are balanced with time for personal and group reflections, stories and timeless exploration. Our unique Earth Education Camp includes, but will not be limited to:
