New Moon Hike & Drum Circle on Oct. 9th

What is special about the phase of the moon called the new moon? New moons generally can't be seen. A New moon occurs when the moon is on the same side of the Earth as the sun.  A new moon is visible only during a solar eclipse!

Celebrate a time of beginnings with the new moon hike and drum circle.

Our 2023 gardening summer camps were a big hit!

Eco-J Summer Camps are full-day outdoor, nature-based camps that get children excited about and engaged with the natural world. Birgitta L. of Racine commented, “After completing a [Eco-J] camp, my child is always brimming with connection to nature and a strong desire to continue to participate in sustainable stewardship of the land.”
Each week-long camp explores a different theme with age appropriate hands-on investigations, art projects, games, and more. Each day features time for campers to participate in free choice activities, create, play, and discover.  “I value every single hands on experience that they do with the children every day,” says Rebecca C. of Racine, “but in addition to all those wonderful things; I greatly appreciate and value the staff and camp counselors. They are simply phenomenal with children, so patient, kind, understanding, fun and friendly – every single one of them!... This summer camp (for all ages) is fantastic!” 

 

Look for 2024 Summer camp information in January or February!
