Private Nature Program

If you're not quite ready to expand outside your bubble, it's okay! We also provide Private Nature Programs. These programs teach ancestral skills like nature connection, fire making, foraging, shelter building, basket weaving, and clay pottery. They are highly customizable for what is best for your family. We can do a program for siblings in the same household, families that are bubbled together, scout groups, neighborhood groups, and more. Visit our website to learn more, or email if you have any questions!

Each program runs from 1:30 - 3:30 PM, for ten weeks from September 21 - December 4 (except Thanksgiving). Programs are at Marsh Sanctuary, Mt. Kisco. There are two parallel groups, one for kids ages 4-7, another for kids ages 8-14. Before signing up, please review our COVID-19 Safety Procedures.
