Wildheart KinderCamp currently offers a 3-day program serving ages 4 and 5 on our farm location. Our home base is a waterproof shelter with access to a bathroom. We will learn and play amongst wild-growth meadows, woodland trails, meandering streams, and farm animals. Our nature-based curriculum will alchemize elements of 8-Shields, Waldorf, and traditional Kindergarten.
No School Nature Days
Join us at nature school where learning and fun are one! Parent teacher conferences, Thanksgiving Break, Veterans Day, and other holidays elicit days off from school. We invite you to join us for one of our exciting themes! The dates below correspond to school days off as shown on the Bend/Lapine School Disctrict schedule. For ages 5 – 12.
Our homeschool programs are for families who want their children to cultivate a deeper connection to nature. Over the course of 10 weeks, students will gain knowledge about local plants, animals, and ecosystems in Central Oregon. They will learn valuable ancestral nature skills, strengthen their interpersonal skills, practice maintaining better focus, and create new friendships. For ages 6 – 12.
Your programs have changed my son’s life in very powerful ways. He learned to embrace his uniqueness! I saw him grow into a more confident young man that is more in touch with himself on a spiritual level and with nature. He learned to be quiet within himself and for him that has been profound!
My daughter came home from camp really happy, really peaceful, content, mindful, and excited about what she made, what she did, and the animals and plants she spent time with. It was really cool to see her so grounded when she came home. I wish I could go to this camp and I wish this was mandatory for all public school kids. I think it’s wonderful. I would recommend it to everybody!
The other day, my kids were arguing with one another and my daughter said, “I’m going to go sit in my sit spot to calm down.” I cannot imagine a better gift for our children than the realization that they have the tools to solve their problems by going within. Thank you for your amazing teachings!
