Nature skills camp

July 22-26, 2024

9:30 am – 3:30 pm

Ages: 6-10

Cost: $325

The whole world is alive around us! Let’s learn to listen to the plants, stones, birds and clouds, as we live out our own wild tales in the forests of our beloved Green Mountains.  While using all five senses, and a whole lot of proprioception, children (ages 6-10) will learn about the plants, animals, geology and weather that make our home here in Vermont so special.  They will cultivate the permaculture ethics of caring for themselves, the land, and their communities. 


All camps take place on our permaculture farmstead in Rochester, Vermont.
