GROWING WILD SUMMER CAMP @ Ellis Hollow

GROWING WILD SUMMER CAMP
@ Ellis Hollow

Each day the kids get to romp in the woods and find natural materials, such as clay, rock-paint, bark, and leaves to create works of woodland art.

This forest playground includes trails to explore, forts to build and play inside and creeks and puddles to splash in. Children delight in singing songs, and sharing stories that reflect their adventures.

Toilet Training: Children must be out of diapers/pull-ups and needing only minimal assistance with toileting. Children are encouraged to pee outside and to poop in a child potty that is kept at our base camp.

Child must be 3 yrs old by May 1

Register for Growing Wild on the the Primitive Pursuits Website

Registration is complete and your child’s space is held when:
Payment has been made in full AND a NEW copy of your child’s latest immunization records has been sent to the Primitive Pursuits office (we are required by the NY Health Dept. to collect these every year, even if your child was with us the previous summer).

Forest Play Day May 24th

Forest Play Day May 24th

Forest Play Days are a great way to have a look into whether a forest preschool might be right for your family! Get out into the woods and experience total nature immersion.

Parents and children birth to age five are invited to join the Ithaca Forest Preschool for a day of stories, stalking, wild tea making & sipping and more as we find our place in the woods at our beloved Trillium Camp at 4-H Acres. Bring water and snacks; there may be opportunities to cook on the fire!

This event is FREE with advance RSVP.

Our May 10th Play Day will now be help on May 24th
Opening Circle 9:00AM – Closing 12:00PM
