Design and build your own model treehouse! Over the course of two weeks, campers will investigate treehouse design, gather materials from nature, and plan and build their own small model treehouse to take home. Treehouse campers also receive age-appropriate instruction in the safe use of saws, hammers, and other hand tools. After the main structure is complete, it is time to add trap doors, pulleys, bridges, and more!
Treehouse Campers spend time each day working on their project, and they also have daily time for general camp activities: visiting the farm animals, nibbling in the children’s garden, digging in the mud kitchen, going on hikes, building forts, and playing with friends.
Our Treehouse Camp teachers are professionals who have lots of experience with children and boundless enthusiasm for outdoor play and exploration! Teachers are assisted by high school student counselors. Each group is also joined by junior counselors (13+ year old volunteers), so we have lots of helpers available. Please see the “Frequently Asked Questions” page for more details on the qualifications of our camp staff.
Camper/Staff ratio: One adult camp teacher and one camp counselor for every 12 children (6:1 child to staff ratio, not including interns or Junior Counselors).
All campers receive a camp tshirt and water bottle. Camp hoodies are available for purchase when you register (optional).
Time: 8:30 – 3:00 (extended day available from 7:30 – 8:30 AM and/or 3:00 – 5:30 PM)
