Our popular Foxwalk Forest School for children aged 5 – 7 comes to the summer!

Foxwalk is a program about building and fostering relationships.  It’s by creating connections to each other and the natural world that our curiosity is stirred and learning flows. Our days are filled with play, exploration, stories, wilderness skills and fun…lots of fun! We are guided by the combined passions of the children and staff, the animals and weather, and the unique magic that each day has to offer.

If you could turn into a bird and follow your child at Foxwalk, you might find them:

  • Playing nature awareness games
  • Engaging in imaginative free play
  • Building fairy houses
  • Learning many different kinds of wilderness crafts, skills, stories and songs.
  • Broadening their relationship with the natural world
