Ages 4-6 / Fairfax, China camp & Tara Firma Farms
Look for frogs, hidden treasures and animal tracks as we make our way through the landscape playing games and singing. This half-day camp is for the younger crew and focuses on experiencing the magic of nature in a hands-on, fun way. Timeless exploration, storytelling and free play balanced by creative nature-based activities and games. Group participation skills are invisibly woven into the day.
Each one of our sites provides something fun and different. When in the Fairfax woods we focus a tad more on tracking and plants, when at the farm we get a chance to meet the farm animals, at China Camp we get some safe beach and water play time.
