Registration for our 2023 summer camps is now open and you can reserve your spot by emailing Andrea Laubstein at email@example.com. When you email, please comment on which week(s) your child(ren) are interested in joining.
Our camps will be primarily outdoors and children should dress appropriately for the weather and come with a water bottle. We will provide a small snack each day. The weekly fee is $125 and there is a discount for siblings. As always, we can discuss alternatives for families who aren’t able to afford the camp fees. Please let us know if finances are a limitation when you apply. If your child is not currently attending Roots of Life, you can complete the registration form for summer here.
6/5-6/9: Theatre in the Woods
Campers will spend their mornings playing in an outdoor amphitheater amidst a pine forest experiencing theater games, Shakespearean poetry, and the art of set making. With a high staff to camper ratio, participants will have both one-on-one support and a group environment in which to build their creative skills of song, dance, and character performance. This camp’s activities will culminate in a 10 to 15 minute one act play performance incorporating the skills and script the campers spent the week learning. The play will be an original adaptation by Terra Currie-Feather, borrowing from William Shakespeare’s a Midsummer Night’s dream.
6/12-6/16: Water, water everyday!
Water is essential for so many aspects of what we do and how we live. Children will explore water through games, experiments, songs, art, recipes, and other experiential activities. As part of our water adventures, we will journey to Tanner lake, nearby creeks, and other natural water features. Our play and explorations with water guides children towards a deeper understanding of how valuable water is in our lives, how we can use it in responsible and beneficial ways, and uncover the magic of water.
6/19-6/23: Farm to Table
Children will have the opportunity to explore the garden, help harvest food, and participate in cooking and meal preparation. We will practice a variety of kitchen skills and the process by which we bring food to our table. We will explore the connection between where our food comes from and how we can nurture the relationship between ourselves, the earth, and the cycles of growth. We will culminate the camp with a picnic, gathering around food together with friends and family.
6/26-6/30: Yoga and Nature
Our yoga and nature camp introduces children to the practices of yoga that take place on and off the mat. Through games, stories, songs, and activities specifically designed for children, we will explore ways to deepen our connection to nature, and to ourselves. Activities will include a daily yoga practice with poses, breathing techniques, and meditation, as well as nature walks, mindful art, storytelling, and free play. This camp will help children express themselves, learn about physical and mental well-being, and deepen their relationship with the natural world.
