First Day back at fall session. It amazes me that even though we run a full year program every year fall still carries with it the excitement of new faces. I have often said the woods has a personality all it’s own and with nature immersion we are feeling the shift on the woods personality and it affects how we interact.
It was great to see kids connecting with nature both on their own in their space and and with the woods as one of their playmates all together. Lots of fun on our way in, with our “wicki-up” (type of tipi like shelter the children have made and often add to every day), our mud kitchen. We also had some quiet moments where children had their own space – in the creek and one child even found his “base camp” with which he was able to feel safe getting to know our main outdoor “classroom”.
