Carving a bow and arrows, sneaking through the foliage, dunking in our creek, roasting apples in a fire started with flint and steel, cutting patterns on poles with our hand-made, foot-powered forest lathe, hunting hidden treasures, blindfold walks through the forest … what will bring your child alive this summer?
Guardians of the Forest
Children join us in learning the ancient ways of the forest, finding the excitement and beauty and wisdom that is hidden in the trees, the rushing creek, the rustling leaves. We have birds here that fly underwater! We have flowers with 100 blooms in a single square inch. There are plants growing here that — if you’re careful — are perfect for a nibble here and there, and even a bit more! And our clay is perfect for face-painting!
Can you find your child, carefully camouflaged with ferns and clay, when they are just a few feet away from you? We dare you!
In Bird Callers we will combine craft, nature awareness, and games! We will do projects such as creating birds, nests, eggs and nature journals. Each creation will be part of learning more about each participant’s favorite birds. We play games, listen to the birds of the land, and enjoy the cool clear waters of Cherry Creek. The arts of needle felting, weaving, and wet felting will be explored and entwined with a love of being out in the deep mossy forest! Ages 8-12
Join us in this week long exploration of wild crafted folk tales, games, and art. We will explore the woods and play in the creek. We will make beautiful creations for children to take home. We may make butterflies and cocoons from naturally dyed wool, felted geodes, bark owls, nature weavings and natural paint brushes, time depending. Come play and let your feral nature free! Ages 5-7
