Wild Ones is an outdoor, nature-based enrichment program for school-age children. Children join us weekly to engage and develop creative thinking, social intelligence, and complex problem solving through experiences in the wild. There will be plenty of time to explore and learn about the natural world around them, design, create, play, and cook over open fire. They will challenge themselves in new ways, making lasting memories in the process.

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.

  • This program runs in 6-week sessions.
  • TimberNook is a 100% outdoor program and we love to play in the rain (emergency shelter available for lightning). Weather appropriate attire for rain and snow is required and essential. We can offer suggestions for good quality rain gear. We ask that each child is equipped with insulated rain boots.
  • A change of clothes, an extra pair of close toed shoes and towel recommended. Please expect kids to come home dirty!
  • Children will need a snack and bagged lunch each day and refillable water bottle.
  • Staff is first aid/CPR trained and background checked.
  • This is a drop-off program. Drop off begins 5 minutes before 9:00 and all children should be picked up promptly at 3:00.

  • There will be a pre-screening procedure that includes keeping a record of temperatures and possible COVID exposure for the two weeks prior to program and every morning upon arrival at camp.  Anyone with any sign of illness will be asked to stay home.
  • Handwashing will occur upon arrival, before eating times, after using the bathroom and before leaving. We will spend time on coaching proper handwashing techniques.
  • Children will not be required to wear masks, but will need to have one with them and will be supported if they choose to wear it.
  • Staff will wear masks when interacting with parents or in close proximity to children.
  • Meal times and circle time will be modified to give children more space.
