COSMIC CAMPFOR KIDS:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, UNIVERSE

Children, ages 7 to 11 years, boys and girls

You are cordially invited to a birthday party for the universe!

 

Children's Program

Each day will be filled with lots of great outdoor events that will foster the child's love of nature and awaken in them an awe and reverence for the wonderful world we live in.

Songs, crafts, walks to search for the 'heart of mystery' and even building a solar oven together are just some of the great events we have planned to teach the children about ecology and the need for greater caring and respect for the earth.

The activities for the 5 days will be based on "Happy Birthday, Universe! A Cosmic Curriculum for Children" by Kim Farmer.

This innovative earth literacy program is designed to give children experiences that are scientific and sacred, serious and fun, and capable of awakening young minds to awe as environmental issues are explored.
