Emerge into the natural world for a weeklong camp that encourages children to explore the bounty of the earth. We will put our hands in the soil to grow food, visit farm animals, make meals and medicine with our harvest, play games in the field, romp in the woods, play in the stream, and swim in the river.
This camp is Jewishly inspired and welcome to all walks of life. We will teach universal values with a Jewish base and share in song and gratitude circles that foster community living connected to the earth.
