Season: June - August

"The best education does not happen at a desk, but rather engaged in everyday living - hands on, exploring, in active relationship with life." 

― Vince Gowman

Nature Week

It all starts with nature. 

The focus of this week in our camp structure is our foundation for anyone wanting to participate in the month long camp.  It's focused on the flora & fauna that is in our eco system, from aquatic bugs & plant life found in our creeks and streams to identifying animal prints and other native plants. Kids will learn about bees, the food web & pest monitoring in the garden.  This week includes nature made boat races, a camp favorite, as well as a farm lunch the kids will help prepare!

For The Parents

It's not all about the kids!

Let's re-think drop off and pickup time... instead of rushing in and out, consider sticking around for some YOU time. There are lots that parents can do separate from Camp Bodhi while on the farm.  Summer options include:

  • Yoga. Check out our yoga class schedule and make some time for yourself. You get a free adult class pass with your child's camp fee.

  • Massage. Schedule a private creekside massage to relax and rejuvenate.

  • Dine. Grab a meal or a drink at our outdoor creekside Field Kitchen with or without the kiddos.
