Gorham, Maine

We are excited to offer TimberNook right in the heart of Gorham, ME - far enough from Portland to find some fresh air and beautiful woods, yet close enough to be convenient! Located on 5 acres of forested land that backs into many more hundreds of acres of woods, children have the chance to step into another world - one where they are given the time and space to run, climb, build, imagine and create. Let them play the TimberNook way!

Overview

Hello and welcome! You will find here information regarding our upcoming programs. The families who find their way to TimberNook are those who believe in the importance of deep, authentic, child-led play for children's minds, bodies, and spirits. Children learn invaluable life lessons when playing with each other, in environments where they are free to make choices, come up with ideas and solve their problems. This is what we aspire to provide at TimberNook, especially at a time when children’s play has been curtailed due to the pandemic. We are 100% outdoors, try to keep small consistent groups, and have lots of space to spread out! Children are currently required to wear face coverings while at our programs (though we offer a medical exemption) and will wash hands before handling food. See below for current winter/spring programs and upcoming spring and summer offerings! Registration for summer camps will open on Feb 8th at 9:00am.
