The world can be a better place when we focus on providing children an environment where they have time and space to create, collaborate and communicate with peers, where nature and play take center stage and the role of the adult is to step back and tune in. We provide year-round TimberNook programs, summer camps and field trips to children ages toddler to teen, as well as connect families and educators to resources and information through professional development and parent workshops.

This program is all about diving deep into one's imagination with a little help from one's friends/ Children will pick a stuffed animal from home to bring into the woods this week. They will enjoy handcrafting items for their special stuffies and taking them on sensational journeys such as having mud play and bubble time.
CHANGE IN LOCATION!!! THIS CAMP WILL NOW BE IN HINESBURG.
One of our most popular programs, where young children "live and breathe" stories out in the wild. Inspired by Dr. Suess classics, children will be doing everything from creating a life-sized circus to enjoying a "green eggs and ham" experience in nature. With the turn of every day, comes a new story for the children to experience and lots of fun!
Children will power themselves into the future with their own hand-built "time machine cars." Will they find robots or crazy contraptions? Only time will tell! Using creativity, ingenuity and lots of imagination, this woodland STEM inspired week is sure to captivate young minds.
Children will work together to create a grand-scale art fair from scratch! They will be designing their own art pieces, creating art exhibits and then selling their merchandise at the end of the week to "paying" customers. If you think your child will enjoy art experiences orchestrated through play, than this is the program for them!
This program emanates childhood days past. A traditional TimberNook program where young children have unique play experiences that challenge their mind and body in beautiful natural settings, followed by hours of play. They'll be doing everything from building dams to alter the flow of water, creating clever castles in the woods, and so much more.
This week is inspired by one of our favorite wizarding worlds. Children will leave the muggle world behind to create mystical potions, participate in wizard games, conjure up campfire treats and so much more! $298 Register here.
THIS CAMP IS FULL. Email Colleen to be put on the waitlist. We are considering bringing on an extra staff person to accommodate more children (for a possible total of 18 children in the program).
