Barefoot and Buckets!

Date/Time: TBD   9:00-1:00 PM

Location: 77 Lovers Lane, Gorham, ME

Welcome to the classic Barefoot and Buckets camp at TimberNook of Greater Portland, ME. Many different adventures await – a day filled with castle building, sword making and plenty of costumes; a day of mud play – from ball runs to kitchens; a day of giant foamy bubbles to run and slide through; and a day of creating roads and imaginary towns through the woods. There will also be a chance or two to cook yummy snacks by the fire!

The TimberNook curriculum weaves together the therapeutic benefits of being outdoors with a thorough understanding of child development. The result is a sensory play experience that supports every aspect of the growing child. Each day we will have a different theme that gives the children inspiration and ideas to bring into their play. This program is designed to give ample time to explore the natural world around us, develop new friendships and delve deeply into the creative world of play.

Our site offers opportunities for individual and group play amidst a beautiful wooded area equipped with rope swings, materials for building and plenty of room to run. We make every effort to accommodate any child who wishes to attend our program.

    What a wonderful experience Beth has created! Another Mom suggested Timbernook to me and I am so thankful she did! My son had the most amazing time running wild with peers. This is exactly what we all need given the difficult year 2020 has been. We cannot wait to be part of Timbernook again!
