Forest Footsteps Summer Camp is a nature-based Summer Camp offering ample outdoor time for play and exploration. Our space includes a lovely, shaded, large yard and campers have access to raw, forested areas in a nearby park, as well as large grassed areas and playground equipment at Orchard Park School.
Campers will spend the majority of their day outdoors engaged in free play, exploration, and fun structured activities. Part of the day will be spent indoors in the bright, spacious, calming space filled with natural toys and play centres to stimulate imagination, cooperative play, and free expression. Campers will enjoy a Seasonal Circle with songs and stories, as well as a fun and engaging Puppet Show. Snacks and lunch will be eaten as a group in our indoor space.
Our approach is based on a deeply-held belief to support and strengthen the social and emotional skills of the 3 to 9 year old, as well as to provide them with opportunities for 'fresh-air play' and exploration. Our goal is to give children simple yet magical interactions with nature and each other, allowing them to slow down and experience their play with deeper purpose and meaning.
