Connect, Play, Explore

We are pleased to be offering Family Adventure Camps in 2021!   Grounded in our core values, the programs stem from three key principles; connect, respect, ripple effect. Time spent connecting with one another allows space for new and richer bonds to form.  Getting out into nature provides an even playing field to see each other’s strengths shine and foster respect for individual learning styles. The ripple effect is a family with stronger roots.

The Perks of Nature’s Playground 

Time spent outdoors has plenty of benefits for ourselves, our families, and our communities. Space and freedom to explore is an important part of child development. Families naturally come with a mix of age and experience and this has its advantages, including collaborative learning, knowledge sharing, and mutual nurturance. Fun and adventure in nature has the potential to unlock the following. 

  • Stronger connections with self and others.
  • Positive impacts on wellbeing. 
  • A caring awareness towards the land.
