Join us for a nature experience! Come with the family to explore mysteries in nature at your own pace using our 9 investigation stations. Answer questions by getting hands-on such as: How can an animal camouflage? How does a pond strider float? What animal left these tracks? What does a flower look like under a microscope?

Complete your nature field guide, and turn it in for a prize!

Dragonfly Nature Club is a way to get kids Ages 5-11 outside exploring nature. Each session is unique, drawing from the seasons, the surroundings, and the kids involved to create a memorable experience. Build shelters, light fires, go hiking, learn outdoor skills, create natural art, and make new friends. 

"We have done many camps over the years but Lizzy's enthusiasm, amazing planning, and love for having fun in nature made this the best camp our nine-year-old has ever been to!"
"The kids were engaged, excited, having fun and learning all at the same time."
"Ms. Lizzy hosts amazing classes that my entire family learns something new from! She is engaged with the students and so much fun and full of energy! Each class is a unique and special experience and we always leave so excited for the next one!"

Birthday Parties


Does your child love the outdoors or survival? 

Just like in their favorite video games, kids will be given a number of challenges, and all the while be building their shelters before ‘night’ falls and the monsters wake up! Players will light their own campfires, ‘mine’ for resources and use sharp blades; all activities are closely supervised by experienced Forest School leaders.  Wildcraft is a day of video game inspired activities ideal for kids aged 6-12 years.
