Led by Jennifer Salkin, Earth Sprouts is a week long, Monday through Friday half-day herbal camp for kids ages 7 to 12. We will explore common herbs, wild flowers and plants and their traditional use in a fun and safe outdoor atmosphere! The kids will learn by taking daily plant walks, listening to Native American stories, playing nature oriented games and will gain hands on experience with various useful plants. Camp participation includes take-home activities, potted plants and more. Join us for this fun filled adventure!
