10 weeks of outdoor fun!

ONE Forest School Summer Camp Program

We offer a fun-filled 10-week summer camp program for children between the ages of 2-12. We’ve partnered with Ferrum College and the Virginia Museum of Natural History to allow some really wonderful guest speakers come and instruct the children one day each week. From Herpetology and Entomology to Dendrology and Mammalogy, these doctors of science really enhance the children’s experiences while at camp!

Another great part of summer camp is our Forest Theater!

Children get to write, direct, act, and create set designs for weekly plays that the community has a chance to see on Fridays, throughout the summer! Each week is themed with important lessons to help children learn how to deal with everyday problems like cheating, lying, bullying, etc. but done through comedy.

Plus, don’t forget about all the cool bushcraft skills they learn along the way! We whittle, learn knot tying, we start campfires through friction, we use hand tools, and we build, build, build! All the structures on the nature preserve were built with the help of the children who love to build! We also have two Virginia Master Naturalists, as permanent staff, to help teach children about Virginia native flora and fauna, macrobiology, rocks & mineral study, etc. We also offer great nature crafting and superb storytelling in hammocks!
