"We tend to block off many of our senses when we're staring at a screen. Nature time can literally bring us to our senses." Richard Louv, Author of 'The Last Child in the Woods'
"You all do an amazing job inspiring kids to be actively engaged in their environment. Every week, Isaac is eager to demonstrate his newly developed skills and knowledge, including catching crayfish for dinner, collecting plants for tea or medicinal uses, and carving wood into bows. He is proud to be able to teach his parents a thing or two!" Summer Camp Parent
