Educational Expeditions LLC, a Prescott company owned by Mariana Altrichter, who is an environmental educator, is once more offering nature camp “All children in the woods” for the Spring Break (March 7-18, M to F) for kids ages 5-10, and every Friday thereafter until May 20th. (Summer nature camp: May 23-27).

This Nature camp aims to help children to connect with nature, with one another, to learn and to have fun. The dynamic is based on a combination of guided educational activities, organized games, songs, art work, journal keeping, walks, building, team work, storytelling, free play, and educational reflective time. Through these diverse activities children are inspired to creatively engage with nature, to practice cooperation and respect, and to develop a sense of wonder and appreciation for the diversity of nature and human beings.

 The camp is at Goldwater lake. Kids can be dropped off at any time between 8 am and 8:20 am, and are picked up at 3 pm. The group spends the whole time in the woods, within a few minute walk from the park facilities and bathrooms. The group size is limited to 16 kids with two instructors.  

 Cost: US $32 per day. Healthful snacks are provided twice a day. Registration deadline: February 19th. Important: Kids cannot be dropped off without previous registration. Limited space, register soon!.
