Sunflowers Day Camp

Sunflowers

The younger we are when we begin to explore the world around us the more we will respect it. This shortened day program will be a great introduction to the out of doors for our youngest adventurers. In a small group setting the “Sunflowers” will stay at our Southwick base camp and will have the opportunity to make new friends, do nature-based craft projects, play games, build self-confidence and get a little bit dirty! Our staff are comprised of experienced outdoor educators and school teachers.  Please send your little one with a mid-morning snack!

Chipmunks Day Camp

Chipmunks

Based out of our Southwick camp location, Chipmunks will head out each day to explore the Greater Westfield area. Their field trips will lead them to parks, wooded areas, and streams where they will be able to get wet, dirty, and muddy as they play and work together in the out of doors. Chipmunks can expect to spend the week hiking, playing cooperative games, learning team building activities, swimming, climbing our high ropes course, stream-hiking, snorkeling and more. Our professional wilderness leader staff know just how to balance fun, excitement, and education in their outdoor classroom.  In addition to a jam-packed week of safe outdoor activities, we provide 1+ group swimming lessons per week and a daily afternoon snack for our Chipmunks.

Pathfinders activities could include: kayaking, canoeing, hiking, snorkeling, high and low challenge ropes course, stream hiking, group initiatives, cooperative games and challenges, primitive skills, biking, swimming and more!
