    Join us in exploring the great outdoors. Campers will be the leaders as they join with friends to create their own fun. Richard Louv, author of the popular book Last Child in the Woods brought together a new and growing body of research indicating that direct exposure to nature is essential for healthy childhood development and for the physical and emotional health of children (and adults). Louv recommends providing children with prolonged exposure to unstructured outdoor play, where they are required to use their imagination, interact with nature, and exercise their bodies. Under careful supervision, campers will traipse through the great outdoors as they follow animal tracks in the Hawken woods, build forts, collect bugs, and play.
