About This Event

Firefly Discovery Camp  

Time in nature builds a child’s confidence, promotes creativity and imagination and helps foster a deep relationship with our environment.  In a world where busyness is held up like a trophy, electronics steal so much of our time and pressure to win is the norm, we invite you and your child to disconnect from the chaos and connect to the rhythm of nature.

Introduce your child to stream shuffling, fairy huts and the wonder of fireflies lighting up the forest with their magic dance.  Think forest walks alongside a mountain creek with engaging activities designed to spark both you and your child’s curiosity.  Give yourself and your little one the freedom to create colorful crafts, participate in Limbertwigs (creative movement), tell fire side tales and finally gather for song and s’mores around a campfire.


The program is designed for 1 adult and 1 child (ages 5 to 6 years old).

Cost: $300 / program fee for both adult and child including one night’s lodging.

Light breakfast, lunch, snacks and s’mores included.  Dinner is on own.

Explore the forest:

Wander along a forest trail exploring  the rocks, moss, trees and leaves.

Splash in the creek waters, wiggle your toes and find all the fascinating critters who live there.


Open your ears and hear the sounds of the forest, the birds, the squirrels chasing one another up trees, wind rustling through the leaves and water rushing over the boulders, dance to the rhythm.

Learn how to protect the Forest so we all can enjoy it’s beauty now and preserve it for future generations.

The sky is the limit when it comes to creativity:

Build a king’s castle, a fairy hut or a firefly house using natures supplies found in the forest.

Craft a unique one of a kind item to take with you as a reminder of your time in the forest.

Use your imagination to create and share stories around a campfire.

Join in song while watching the stars fill the sky and fireflies light up the forest floor.




Weave a tall tale with your child becoming the characters through easy creative movement.

Introduce your child to a healthy practice he/she can easily learn and have fun doing.

Tickle the sky with your fingers as you enjoy an exercise where each participant is encouraged to honor their physical capabilities and relax while breathing in the clear mountain air.
