Mountain Kids! After School

Get your kids out to play in nature!

Mountain Kids! After School program is a place for children to engage in free-play, group games, exploration, hiking, wilderness skills, and arts & crafts during adventures on local trails.

Studies (and experience) show that being outside in nature is good for children’s social, emotional and spiritual health. Children develop greater confidence, team work skills and build up tolerance for adversity by spending time outside, and so much more!  All of this while having fun, getting dirty, and best for parents; tired!

How did our ancestors and the peoples native to this land feed, clothe and provide tools for themselves? Much of these materials come from animals small and large from land, river and sea. We will learn how different traps are made for which animals, when and when and how to make them. No animals will be trapped in the process and safety will be discussed and practiced throughout the camp.

Mud, Clay and Camouflage

Getting dirty has to be one of the greatest joys of childhood! This week we will learn about mud, clay and camouflage in a variety of ways.  We’ll muck in the mud, create with clay, and combine both art forms to camouflage ourselves in nature. We’ll become stealthy stalkers in sneaking and hiding games and be ready for a good scrub after this week of muddy fun!
