Earth and Sky School offers play-based, child-led Nature-inspired experiences in the Forest. This multi-aged program (3.5-10 years; CIT program 11-13 yrs) offers organic opportunities to learn from ourselves, others, and our Nature friends. Programs include Forest Afternoons, School Holiday (including Spring Break), and Summer Camp
"We are an intentionally slow paced family, and it takes a lot for me to sign my son up for an after-school activity. But I couldn’t sign him up fast enough for Forest School! I believe that a strong connection with nature is absolutely essential to a child’s well-being (actually, everyone’s well-being if we get right down to it), and Forest School does so much to foster that connection. Exploring in the woods is a perfect antidote to a long day spent behind a desk at school, and my son comes home dirty, happy, centered and refreshed! He truly loves his time at Forest School and we know that it is nourishment to his body, mind and soul. Thank you, Angelique for the wonderful gift you’re offering our children!"

Henry wanted to go for a walk around the block after dinner one of these recent warm nights. As we were walking he was talking about how nice it was and then he stopped and did the breathing exercise you taught him (breathe in through roots and branches). It was pretty awesome to see. I just wanted to share one little example of how much an impact your camp has had on him.
"I truly believe that the programs is that my 7 year old has participated in have provided an array of tools that is helping her understand the nature of her feelings, building empathy and developing a strong sense of self, as well as exploring and experiencing a deep connection with Mother Earth, herself and the people around her. Angelique Kenney creates a beautiful safe space that allows this to happen."

Julia is so so excited to go back to Earth and Sky tomorrow. She very proudly showed me Basecamp during a walk today. She also told me that we are actually part of nature, even though we forget.
