Forest Lore and Herbalism Summer Camp

Our campers are introduced to the principles of ethical foraging, learning to identify and harvest wild plants without harming the ecosystem. Guided by expert foragers and naturalists they discover how to spot edible plants and understand their role within their habitats. This hands-on approach not only nurtures a sense of stewardship towards nature but also instills a deep appreciation for the interconnectedness of life.

Alongside practical skills, our camp dives into the rich tapestry of folklore surrounding local flora. Through storytelling and creative activities, children explore the myths and legends that have sprouted around plants for centuries, enriching their experience with a cultural and historical perspective. This blend of knowledge and imagination ignites a curiosity that extends beyond the camp, inspiring a lifelong fascination with the natural world.

The journey into herbalism introduces campers to the basics of using plants for simple, natural remedies. They learn to identify healing herbs and their uses, crafting their own herbal preparations under the guidance of experienced herbalists. This not only empowers them with practical skills but also fosters an understanding of the healing power of plants.

Set against a backdrop of breathtaking landscapes, our summer camp offers a nurturing space for young minds to grow and flourish. Through the activities of foraging, plant identification, delving into folklore, and practicing herbalism, campers develop a profound respect for nature. They return home enriched with knowledge, new skills, and a deep-seated appreciation for the natural world and its ancient wisdom.
