Program Details:

A Week of Wild

This going wild adventure takes play to a whole new level through collaborative, creative, and sensory-immersive experiences with friends new and old. We guarantee a week full of adventure, games, and surprises. Expect to build forts, make maps and search for treasure, work your way through a muddy obstacle course, and become a gladiator if you so choose!

Please read this information carefully prior to registering your child.

This nature program is for children ages 7-12, but the ages may be flexible to accommodate siblings- please send us an email prior to registration if this is an issue for you. This summer camp runs 9am-3pm. 

Our program is inclusive; we are a safe place for children and families of all abilities, backgrounds, and belief systems. Children are required to bring their own food; families will be notified of allergies prior to camp.

              COVID procedures:

  • altered pick-up and drop-off procedures in place
  • frequent cleaning of bathroom
  • heightened cleaning/disinfection throughout the day
  • cohort size limited to 18 children
  • masks not required outdoors, but will be required in the event that we have to weather indoors for a storm. Children should arrive wearing them until after temperature checks and sanitizing. This may change depending on fluctuating regulations.
  • some activities/materials modified
  • REFUND POLICY- In the event that we have to close due to lockdown, you will be offered a 90% refund or 100% credit.  Credit is ONLY issued in the event that TimberNook Northwest Indiana has to cancel the program; if a child has to miss a class due to illness, quarantine or any other reason there will be no refunds, credit or transfer of class. 

When deciding if summer camp will be a good fit for your child, please take the following into consideration:

  • We maintain a 6:1 child/adult ratio where the role of the adult is to step back and tune in. TimberNook staff maintains visual contact with children, but may be out of arm’s reach. Counselors allow children the opportunity to build conflict resolution skills, stepping in when safety is a factor.
  • Children maintain visual contact of a TimberNook counselor, stay within the designated boundaries of our site, and manage their needs (such as eating, drinking fluids, and using the restroom).
  • If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch. If you are having difficulty with registration or payment, please try a different browser (chrome is the suggested browser) and clear your cookies/cache. If this program is full, please email us to be added to the waitlist:  erin.crews@timbernook.com

An email will go out prior to camp with more details about what to expect. Thank you for supporting TimberNook Northwest Indiana!
