Nature Connection Camp
Instructor: Keith Wilson, Nature Mentor
Children ages 10 to 12 will be re-introduced to a most human birthright: dynamic awareness of nature. Join Nature Mentor, Keith Wilson in rediscovering the joy and power in seeing (as well as hearing, smelling…) and understanding the natural world through games, primitive skills, and awareness tools! Learn valuable skills such as fire-building, tracking, plant-identification, and most importantly be inspired to spend more time outside.

226 Frogtown Road, Pequea, PA 17565.
Cost will be $50 per child for each day camp. Register for all three camps at a discount for $135.
