Maple is currently full for our Summer Session. Please scroll to the bottom to sign up for our waitlist. 

Full Day Nature Immersion Program for Ages 5-7*

June 13 through August 18, 9:00am to 2:30pm
Children must be at least 5 years old by the start of the session to join a Maple full day program

Aftercare option available until 5:30pm (pick up anytime during those hours).

In our magical forested setting, children in Maple explore and play, while cultivating an innate connection with the Earth's wisdom. Our guides and mentors engage children in building fairy houses, discovering trees, plants and animals, working in the gardens, doing nature-inspired art projects, playing in our mud kitchen, and taking hikes to explore the many ecosystems on our land. Children will have opportunities to learn basic tool use, fire and shelter building, farming, foraging and more. Cooperative problem-solving, community-building, empathy for other living beings, and strengthening confidence and comfort in nature are all skills that are organically woven into the day. The program will be outdoors, rain or shine unless weather is extreme (such as high winds or heat index of 100 or more), which may result in cancellation.

"If we want children to flourish, to become truly empowered, then let us allow them to love the Earth before we ask them to save it."
-David Sobel

*We recognize that children don’t all develop at the same rate. For children who are on the line between age groups, our staff will work with parents to make an assessment as to which group seems most appropriate based on personality, ability and group dynamics. Children must be at least 5 years old by the start of the program to join a Maple full day program. 

**If you would like us to set up a monthly payment plan, please email us after you submit your enrollment form and we can assist.
