The Forest Path Summer Camps connects kids to our beautiful natural playground – our birthright to smell, taste, feel and hear the living land around us. In a playful way, we deepen our nature skills, which will also deepen our community skills and our relationship with our own self. The camps are all outdoors for age 3 – 12. The Forest Path has offered camps since 2017 and we have an experienced team this summer. We believe nature is the best teacher that models values such as belonging, quiet mind, generosity, resilience and vitality. Qualities that are most likely to be very much needed for the unknown future.
The City of Nelson is working on a permit process for using City Parks, so we will let you know final locations when the City has made their plans, probably close to the Rails to Trails. We are also excited to offer some camps at our friends’ lands on the North Shore, a few km from Nelson (10-15 mins).
