Camp Begins!

Our Staff Orientation week has come to an anticipatory close. We’ve learned, played and connected, and have spent five days immersed in the ins and outs, nuts and bolts, and overarching purpose of The Nature Place Day Camp – connecting with ourselves, with others, and the earth! Tomorrow it all begins, another summer full of wish, wonder, and surprise. IMG_0756 IMG_0793 IMG_0794 IMG_0834 IMG_7699 IMG_7750

Maple Sugaring was Sweet

We had a terrific time tapping trees at our maple sugaring program! The sap was flowing (the cold weather gave us a slow, steady drip), the outside fire boiling our sap provided a welcomed break from the cold, and the pairing of hot syrup on ice alongside a dill pickle was a delectable match made in maple heaven.

This song is one of these odd, beautiful things that comes out of The Nature Place Day Camp. Be sure to share it with your camper, and be prepared for them to sing along! Composing credit goes to Colin, Peter, Alex, and Snoopy.

This version comes to us from camper Brian Louis and his dad, Scott, accompanying him on guitar.

Early Bird Enrollment

The early bird gets the worm!

We’re already planning for next summer, 2014, and as this fantastic summer ends we’re giving you the chance to plan ahead too. Signing up for 4, 5, or 6 weeks as an early bird (paying in full by October 1st) saves you 10% off our regular tuition price, and that’s a worm worth getting!
