We believe that long summer days are for exploring, creating, and for getting dirty. At our Ancestral Skills Camp, campers will explore all things ancestral. It used to be that if we needed something, we went to the woods or the farmyard and made it ourselves. We believe that all people big and small crave self-sufficiency. We'll explore bushcraft skills, homesteading and everywhere in between. We will track animals, learn about plant identification, forage, weave, make arrows, shoot bows, make a healing salve using local plants, build shelters, carve soap, and whittle toys. Each day will include a new skill, crafts, games, quiet reflection, and good times. We will spend much of the day outdoors under the trees in nearby City Park.

Things to know:

  • For campers ages 5-11. All campers work collaboratively and we differentiate instruction based on the abilities of each camper. Think of it as a one room school house, summer style. 
    • Note: our camper age range is a non-negotiable policy. Please do not register your child if they are not between the ages 5-11 during their camp session. We reserve the right to forfeit your child's camp reservation if your child does not meet the age requirements. 
  • Each week of summer camp is limited to 20 participants and staffed with two super talented instructors. 
  • Camps run 9-3pm. We do not currently offer early drop-off. 
  • Add optional aftercare until 5:30pm for $20/child or $35/two.
  • Late pick-up may be subject to a $1/minute fee up to the $20 aftercare charge. 
  • Please pack a hat/sunglasses, water bottle and a nut-free lunch for your child.
  • We will walk to City Park each day. The park is about 9 shady blocks from the shop.
  • We provide a morning snack. Gluten and dairy free option available. 
  • Closed toed shoes are required. 
  • We will do our best to resolve any problems as they come. However, we reserve the right to excuse a child from camp if they are harming the experience of others without refund. 
  • Let's have fun, explore & create!
