    In the woods, between pines and oaks, in the mud and baskets, under the pine cones and branches, there are secrets… Children in nature want to discover those secrets, and grow emotionally through these experience. Nature is the ideal learning environment -every day we discover and learn through free play, nature is an endless source of stimuli, experiences, and fluid activities such as Yoga, breathing, playing, dancing, music, storytelling … We look at children with everything they bring, without judgments or expectations, listening to their needs, and teaching them self-regulation through emotional companionship, boundaries, and bonding.

    This natural environment is ideal for free play because it is a wide and diverse space that offers a multitude of varied stimuli and neutral materials. The possibilities of interpreting this world creatively are endless.

    The open spaces allow children and young people to move and develop play scenarios with great flexibility. Due to the extent of the playfield, they can satisfy their need for movement freely. Landscape diversity encourages physical ability and stimulates the mind

    In open spaces noise is not trapped as in enclosed spaces, so it created a calmer context where children and youth tune into this tranquility and therefore are much more receptive. The abundance of natural materials and space helps maintain harmony and collaboration, creating a healthy and enjoyable play culture.

    The balance must be paid in full by the Wednesday before camp begins or your child will be dropped. All cancellations from camps must be submitted 6 days prior to the start date of the camp to receive a refund, all other cancellations will be non-refundable.
