All the fun of Thrive Forest School packed into camp! Woodland art, critter hikes, forest music, log crossing, puddle splashing, structure building, friend making fun!
As with forest preschool, we follow a child-led, inquiry-based, exploratory play model. We work with what nature gives us (sun! rain! mud!) and embrace it all. Our motto is “Your child will come home dirty or your money back!” So far, no refunds have been issued 😉
Children must be potty proficient and at least 3 years of age by the first day of camp. We are offering two age groups this year (3-6 and 7-12) each week for the morning camp, along with an afternoon camp for kids age 6-12!

Afternoon Adventurers at Thrive is geared towards elementary-aged kids in grades K-5. After a tough day of hitting the books, we hit the brooks (and creeks and ponds and forest and treetops)! Child-led, social, exploratory play designed to help kids unwind and have grand adventures. Outside in all weather, this program offers an escape from screen time and information overload.
Schedule & Costs
Schedule: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:30pm or 3:30pm to 5:00pm (two separate drop-off times). We are a designated bus stop for Harmony Elementary school and offer a drop-off zone for parents who are driving.
Cost: Varies based on drop-off time, click the button below to see all options. Financial assistance is available.

At Thrive Acorns, children ages 18 months to young 3 year olds, along with a parent or caregiver, will develop physical, social, and emotional skills as they play in our magical forest classroom. Each class in this 6-week series (held Wednesday mornings) will be expertly guided by Ms. Kathryn, a Thrive Forest School educator for the past 5 years.
Classes follow a theme each week (e.g., Forest Music, Colors of Nature, Birds and Seeds) and strike a balance between guided and exploratory play.
Schedule & Costs
Schedule: Classes are held on Wednesday mornings from 9:45 – 11:45 across a 6-week session. The current cost is $150.
Acorns Winter 2023 semester is Full. The next dates are tentatively set April to May 2024.
