Summer Kids spend all their time  in the great outdoors. Our days are child and nature-led, and as free-play-based as possible. Whether its warm sunshine, cool rain, lazy days, or adventures on-the-go, your child will be busy, happy, and growing with other like-minded friends in their natural, screen -free environment. We have a wonderful base camp with covered outdoor classroom, indoor bathrooms, hammocks, sprawling lawn, trails, mud, playground, forts, chickens, and Brooktown. We also take impromptu field trips to local favorite spots like Pondicherry Park, Hawk Mountain, and Field of Dreams. in our 12-passenger Maple Mobile.
