TimberNook Summer Camps

The world can be a better place if we focus on getting children outside-- encouraging movement, play and creative experiences in nature. TimberNook programs empower children to take healthy risks and work together with others while using the outdoors as the third teacher. Our programs center around allowing children time and space in the natural world, where the role of the adult is to step-back and tune-in. As a result, we see transformative benefits such as children feeling empowered, capable and proud of their ability to build and create, problem solve and communicate with others and manage their day. 
Note: TimberNook Summer Camp registration is managed through the TimberNook website.

2024 Summer Camp Schedule

Wonder Roots is pleased to once again offer TimberNook summer camps this year.

2024 Schedule (links will activate once the registration period opens)

Registration information:

Due to the high demand of our summer camps, we have decided to slightly change our enrollment process so we may continue to nurture the relationships we have with current & past families while also welcoming new families. We will have enrollment "waves" scheduled for each of the following groups:

  • WAVE 1: January 27: 9:00 AM-- Current Families

  • WAVE 2: January 28: 9:00 AM-- Past Families (enrolled in programs during the last 1-2 years)

  • WAVE 3: February 3: 7:00 PM-- Email List Subscribers

  • General Enrollment: February 4: 7:00 PM-- Open to the public (no passcode needed)

How Does It Work?

Each enrollment wave will have a limited number of slots to access via passcode. If space fills up in your assigned wave, you will also gain access to subsequent waves and can attempt enrollment during that time. Enrollment space is not guaranteed. If enrollment fills during wave 3, we will begin a waitlist.
  1. Current & Past Families: If you attended a Wonder Roots Program (TimberNook summer camp, Forest Playgroup, Curiosity Connections or Afterschool Adventurers) in the last 1-2 years, we should have record of you in our system. Look out for an email from us. We will send you details (along with a few reminders!).
  2. Email List Subscribers: Be on the lookout for an email from us with details. We’ll send out several emails so you don’t miss anything!
  3. Not an email subscriber? Get on our list! Or, if you like living on the edge, you can take your chances and wait until General Enrollment opens on Feb. 5th. 

Please take the time to review our cancellation policy and camp FAQs before enrolling.
