Outdoor Explorer Camps Summer 2023!

These camps are full! Thank you!

Welcome to Little Schoolhouse in the Woods’ Outdoor Explorer Summer Camps! We are excited to share the woods with your kids! When selecting a camp for your child, be sure to click on the camp for their age from the drop down menu. We’ll send you an email in a few weeks, plus another email a couple weeks before the camp with some more information. Of course, we welcome your questions at littleschoolhouseinthewoods@gmail.com.

 Our summer camps are all outdoors in all weather (with the exception of unsafe weather-we have indoor space), so dress your children appropriately. There is more information about these camps and what you will need to pack at the bottom of the page. We provide a midmorning snack, but all campers should pack a lunch.

Here are our Outdoor Explorer Camps for Summer 2022:

Camp A-Owlettes, ages 3 to 5

May 22 through May 24, 2023 (Mon-Wed) 9:30a.m. until 1p.m. (pack a lunch), cost: $160

We will spend our mornings  in the woods with generous free time and close adult supervision. This is an excellent outdoor experience for early childhood! We tell stories, sing songs and play games while children have the chance to freely explore nature. The experienced teachers keep the children safe while enabling a positive outdoor, natural learning adventure. Plus, we provide a mid morning snack!

Camp B-Squirrels, ages 5 to 8

May 31 through June 2, 2023 (Wed-Fri), 9:30am-1pm (pack a lunch), cost: $160

This is an excellent way for these kids to unwind from a rigorous school year and get into summer mode. We guide them through games, tell stories, do some basic crafts, fairy house building and more! Don’t worry, there’s plenty of down time to socialize, explore nature and just play! Plus, we provide a mid morning snack, students should pack a lunch!

Camp C-Owls, ages 9 to 12

June 5 through June 7, 2023 (Mon-Wed), 9:30am-1pm (pack a lunch), cost: $160

Our kids are getting bigger and they demanded we expand our age range accordingly. Here it is! Just the right thing for kids 9 to 12 years old! It’s been a rough year and now let’s have fun and play out in the woods! Meet new friends and invite old friends to hang out. We play games and just relax. Enough said.

Additional Information

Just a couple of notes for you to consider. We will be doing lots of hiking and playing in the woods of Mt. Airy Forest, so keep that in mind when you are getting your child ready. Children will need sturdy boots or creek shoes that will be comfortable enough to hike and play in the woods and at the creek. We will send an email to you at the address you use for payment that will include all of the relevant information you’ll need.

Even though we will spend a lot of time in the shade of the woods, we advise sunscreen, and a reliable bug repellent is always recommended.

Please, don’t bring personal items like toys, flip flop shoes or electronics.

Children should bring their lunches. We will provide a healthy vegetarian mid-morning snack for all three camps. If your child has a special diet, please be sure to provide an appropriate alternative snack for them and let us know about the dietary restriction.

SUNSCREEN

BUG REPELLENT
