ABOUT FOREST & FROLIC KIDS CAMP
Welcome to our first offering of Forest & Frolic Kids Camp in beautiful Northwest Lower Michigan! Our vision is to foster creativity, joy, and learning that engages the five senses. At our camp, the children will be encouraged to tell their own stories, learn some new stories from us, go for hikes, spend time in the garden dirt, put on plays, do some kid-tastic yoga, taste and smell fruits, vegetables, and herbs, listen to the wild sounds that surround us, and sooo much more! We will weave the elements of earth, air, fire, and water into our daily activities, using natural materials such as wood, wool, and clay to inspire creativity and a deep respect for the land, all the while learning fine motor skills, awareness of our environment, developing language skills, building confidence, and cultivating a sense of wonder for the outdoors!
Building relationships between the children, as well as a strong bond with us as camp leaders is of utmost important to us. Each morning upon arrival children will be greeted and play or sit with a camp leader. At around 10:15 we will initiate a circling up, sing a morning song, share our names and engage in games that will create comfort and ease as we transition into the more active part of our day. Each day will be themed with an element, and on that day we will be celebrating the element in everything that we do! For example, on Water Wednesdays, we may take a short walk to the creek and explore the flora, fauna, and funga, paint a clay animal water whistle, sample some different herbal teas, make a popsicle, paint a watercolor card, and so on.
We are so grateful to have this opportunity to play, create, and learn with your children this summer!
