Our financial aid philosophy is take what you need and give what you can. We recognize that there are economic hardships, and we want to be accessible to all, so we ask that you pay whatever it is that you can.
The more you can pay, the more children we are able to extend aid to. Before you request financial aid we ask families to consider if there are family members or friends who might help provide a scholarship to your family for this program.
While nobody has ever been turned away for lack of funds, our ability to accommodate financial aid requests rests on the strength of our program enrollment and the generosity of the individuals, businesses and foundations that partner with Wild Earth to make financial aid possible.
We're in this together! Many of us are stretching ourselves to make sure that cost doesn't get in the way of anyone playing, exploring and learning in nature.
Requests for financial aid are processed alongside your registration. This enables you to reserve a space in the program while our team is reviewing aid requests. Register now and reserve your space in Spring Break Earth Art Camp today.

Wild Earth’s home, 135 acres of wilderness on Rock Haven Road in Kerhonkson
At this all outdoor camp kids will break out into smaller groups of up to a dozen participants based on age. The mornings will be spent bonding with our small groups, playing nature-based games, exploring, and learning earth-living skills like fire building and shelter making. We will spend the afternoons working on crafts and projects inspired by our immersion in the natural world.
Children are supported through strong routines and rhythms, age-appropriate activities, and the safety of shelter and fire. Instructors create a rainproof shelter for children to retreat to during a long day in the woods. This tarp shelter feels like home, thus allowing all campers to feel safe and sound in the possibly challenging early spring weather. Under this shelter, we sit fireside and engage in natural crafting, storytelling, circle games, and singing.
At the end of the day, with smiles on our faces, we’ll return from our adventures to the larger circle where we share stories from our day.
Arrival & Welcoming – We will be checking children to confirm that they have appropriate gear for the day.
Morning Circle – Acknowledge our place in the world and share gratitude, lifting our voices in song.
Small Group Adventuring – Children will connect in small age based groups for games, crafts near a fire and adventures.
Lunch and Story Share – We return to our larger-group central fire to share the stories of the morning and to nourish ourselves with lunch.
Choice-Based Activities – Choose between 3-5 skill-based activities and games. Activities vary from high-energy games, to fireside crafting, carving, tea making, tracking, and more!
Closing Circle – We come together with our original song and harvest some of our most exciting memories of the day.
