Registration for Spring 2023 Workshops are OPEN!
All our workshops are 100% outside & place-based. These programs utilize public lands - parks, trail systems and green spaces. Each workshop is designed with a unique craft or that layers in pieces from nature or a practical outdoor topic we are passionate about. We will do all the prep work and clean up - all you have to do is show up!  It is fundamental to us to provide a space for everyone to express their creativity through a balance of structure, choice and play with experienced instructors who facilitate opportunities to learn. Bigger courses aren't the right fit for everyone so we are committed to having small groups to provide the most fun and individualized attention.

Preparing Kids for Winter Activities

How to stay comfortable, safe & happy outside during winter months

Time outside is... Growth mindset. Movement. Mood boosting. Whole body health. Balance. Not a screen. Development. Social skills. 

And it's just as vital for kids in the winter as it is in the summer. Yet kids spend, on average, less than 10 minutes per day outside. It is our goal that by sharing what we know and practice, we may break down some of those barriers to getting kids outside in the winter. 

Effie of Maine Outdoor Kids and Jill of Outdoor Movement Project discuss how to prepare yourself and children for fun outdoor experiences in winter months. 

By curating a carefully designed & positive attitude towards daily outdoor excursions, you can feel more confident venturing outside so it becomes part of your daily routine.
