Join our Forest Friends as we explore nature’s playground, practice yoga, sing music, make art and learn eurythmy dance. We have an amazing team of skilled guides who will take us on the journey to creative outdoor play during our endless summer days!
At this young age, children are nomads of exploration. Their imagination takes them through infinite space and infinite time. In essence, we are exploring cosmic education, by showing them the relationship between things, living nature, and people. Nature is our playground and sanctuary and gives the child a sense of responsibility, wonder, freedom, and admiration.
During our course, we will integrate arts, music, movement with the elements of nature -- whether it's the rock, tree, stream, or bird.
Each day will have various guided activities all taught by guides and specialists.
