All summer camps will run from the week of June 24th - July 29th (Week of July 4th is off)

NATURE CREATIVE WRITING : During these five weeks kids will explore and discuss:

  • How is nature used in haiku poems?

  • How does nature inspire us to awaken our senses and express emotions through words?

  • What are the elements within a story that makes it interesting to write and read?

  • What are characters? How can I create one, two or many?

    These explorations will allow children to give them the tools, understandings and confidence to create two projects: writing their own haiku poem and a comic booklet.

Limited spaces: 12 kids.

CREATIVE FORM DRAWING - Ages 4 and up : Waldorf inspired drawing for the children who are not ready to write yet. This type of creative drawing helps the child to develop hand-eye coordination, spatial orientation, confident movement and foundation skills for hand writing. Limited spaces: 6 kids.

" When we decided to start on a new educational path for our seven-year-old son, we knew we wanted to incorporate learning through nature and being outside. I found numerous programs to choose from and after doing some research and asking questions, we chose Monica's Aligned with Nature program.

This program has been a highlight of our son's journey this school year. He has made wonderful friendships with other kids in the class, and he has gained valuable life skills through the education Monica and Zoe provide. We belong to a charter and have been able to use journal entries, science experiments, and crafts as "work samples" on a monthly basis - something that is important and valuable. Our son has also learned how to meditate, do yoga and express his feelings - all of which have aided in his social and mental development.

For our family, this type of education and experience is vital and joyful. We are so happy to have found Aligned with Nature and look forward to continuing our journey with them for years to come" - Jaime S
