Preschool School Breaks

Spring Camp!

Welcome Spring back to the Finger Lakes with stories, stalking, wild tea making and more!

Join the Ithaca Forest Preschool for a full week of stories, stalking, wild tea making & sipping and more as we welcome Spring back in the woods of our beloved Trillium Camp at 4-H Acres (418 Lower Creek Rd, Ithaca, NY 14850).

Nature is the teacher. We are mentors and facilitators, helping young children connect with their bodies, the elements of nature and each other within a safe explorative space in the outdoors.

We help young children connect with nature and each other, while exploring a safe space in the outdoors. Each day kids discover the wonders in the woods around our camp, sing songs, and share stories. They use natural materials, such as clay, rock-paint, bark, and leaves to create works of woodland art.

Our forest playground includes trails to explore, forts to build and play inside and puddles (or snow!) in which to stomp.

Ages 3-5 years old*

*Spaces for 3-year-olds are currently full on Mon-Tues. Please email primitivepursuitscamp@gmail.com to be added to the waitlist.
