2020 didn’t quite go the way we had planned but we are grateful for the opportunities we had to foster new and continuing relationships and create space for local organizations to safely conduct their programming while hosting and co-hosting some of our own!
The Environmental Exploration Farm Camp is a seasonal program that began in 2020. Evergreen Education and the Robinwood Center creatively combined their efforts and resources to host a safe and fun space for kids to learn through nature on the farm! The neighboring farms provide an ideal space for campers to immerse themselves in nature-based learning.
Many things make this thoughtfully curated program special, including a continuous theme of meditation, yoga, and mindful connection. From learning about the seasonal crops, to practicing nature-based yoga postures down by the pond, each day at camp is filled with opportunities to move, learn, and play. Evergreen Education Director Kat McDonnell collaborates with certified K-8 teachers, yoga instructors, and other professionals to offer a well-rounded and engaging curriculum.
With careful consideration of all safety protocols, this camp focuses on small cohorts, gathering groups of campers who are connected through friendship and common neighborhoods. The three cohorts hosted in 2020 included kids from Exeter and Rye, NH.
In partnership with the Robinwood Center, Evergreen Education looks forward to welcoming campers again this year in the warmer months! To be notified when 2021 dates are announced for the Environmental Exploration Farm Camp, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
