About The Camps

The WE Summer Day Camps are an opportunity for youth ages 6-12 to spend a week in the field with our team of mentors—exploring, learning, and having fun while connecting with their own wild and true selves, one another, and the natural world. This curiosity and passion-led program provides unforgettable experiences while developing an appreciation for the beautiful and wild places so close to home.

At Weaving Earth we do not see ourselves as simple spectators of nature! We are actively engaging with leaf and branch, feather and frog, mud and wind. Interacting with the land in hands-in-the-dirt play is a time-tested way to provide young people with an embodied sense of connection, as well as build self-confidence, curiosity, empathy, and individual creativity. Through this connection, a genuine love of place is born, as is a natural desire to steward the land in a way that is rooted in deep respect, reciprocity and interdependence.

Our playful and well-trained staff bring a breadth of knowledge and skill, which they offer generously in response to the interests and curiosities of the children who show up. This means that no two weeks are ever the same, as they are tailored to meet the needs of each group and individual, as well as being influenced by the seasons, the weather, and whatever might be happening on the land at that particular time. The content in any given week is sure to hold a mix of:

  • Imaginative play and games
  • Deep nature connection
  • Adventures on the land—following curiosities to see where they lead us
  • Storytelling and song sharing
  • Ancestral crafts and wilderness skills
  • Sensory awareness games
  • Bird language
  • Learning wild foods and medicines
  • Archery
  • Camouflage and stalking
  • Wildlife tracking
  • Field journaling
  • Communication skills and peacemaking
