All the fun of Thrive Forest School™ packed into 5 days! 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 (3-5 and 6-11)!
Summer-long afternoon camp: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 2pm-5pm.
Session Dates: June – August
Cost: $170 per week (Need-based scholarships available.)
Thrive Forest School
We are Louisville’s first nature-based preschool and are excited to offer your 3- to 6-year-old a true forest school program!
By design, forest preschools keep a very low child-to-teacher ratio (6-to-1). This allows for plenty of coverage to confidently allow children the space they need to engage in exploratory play while ensuring safety as well as ample teacher engagement. Classes fill up quickly!

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.
