Virtual Nature Programs | Online Summer CampsHamsaDesign2020-05-29T09:57:04-04:00
Covid-19 has changed our world in so many ways and has brought into focus the importance of our relationship to nature, no matter how young or old we are. Summer is coming, and systems and programs we relied on for our kids or ourselves are no longer available. We are here to help you get off the screens, and GET OUTSIDE! Our stellar instructors have developed hybrid online/outdoor programs–which we tested and had great success with this spring–to provide valuable nature mentoring that keeps kids and adults active and engaged with the earth this summer.
Please note that most of these are one-day events that you can choose to register for individually, although the calendar icon shows the duration of the whole series.
