Nature Camp: All Children in the Woods

Shared by Mariana Altrichter:
I wanted to spread the word about a nature camp  “All children in the woods” that I run during school breaks, and now, on Fridays. I think it can be an additional resource for families who want their kids to spend time outdoors and learn natural history, ecology, and conservation, to develop team work abilities, and to meet other children in a safe, fun environment.
I am a teacher at Prescott College, and my personal passion is to help children to connect with nature. For this reason, I created a camp where kids spend time in the woods, playing, exploring, doing art, learning, and having fun. I focus on caring and respect, for each other and for nature. I have organized many activities where kids learn ecological concepts, without even know they learning. I base all games on cooperation and collaboration rather than competition, and teach about the power of team work. I pay attention to enhancing interpersonal skills and conflict resolution through dialogue and expression.
This camp will be offered on Fridays April 10th and 17th, and May 1st, 8th and 15th, from 7:30/8 am to 3 pm, at Goldwater Lake. 
It costs $32 per kid per day. We provide healthy, organic snacks twice a day, and we provide all the art supplies. Kids bring their lunch and water.
The camp is designed for children ages 5 to 9. We keep a small group (max 15 kids) with two qualified adult instructors (myself and a second instructor).
I am attaching a flyer with more information and details.
thanks in advance, and I hope we can work together to provide our kids the benefits that connecting with nature offer.
You can contact me by email at maltrichter@prescott.edu or marianaalt@msn.com or by phone at 928-4455446
Mariana also has a great flyer that shares more information about this Nature Camp. Please email her to ask for more details about the camp.
