    Default The Sitting Tree Camp

    So Haley has been at the Sitting Tree Camp all week. She is having a great time! They are really good there and Haley is coming home each night with stories and things that she has learned. (different kinds of pond plants and animal information mostly since they have bunnies, mice, guina pigs, and dogs in the building with them that they can hold and play with)
    It is nice to see such a 'basic', stress free, nature based environment for her to enjoy. They go on a hike through Westminster Ponds/woods every day and do all kinds of crafts and play games. They are outside a lot rain or shine and she has been coming home TIRED!

    Anyways, I would highly recommend it. Something different that some may have never heard of before.

    Great! Thanks for sharing. We are considering the day camp or perhaps the homeschooler program in the fall. Good to hear a review

    The daycamps are only in July I believe. But maybe there is some space left.

    I don't know what the school programs are like. I am guessing they are similar to the camp though in a sense.

    What is the timing for the camps? Meaning what time do they begin each day and end?

    Drop off is 8:45. Pick up 4:00 (or 4:15ish )

    They have extended hours as well if you need it (for a fee of course). I can't remember those times though. It may be on the site under the Registration tab too.

    I am considering the homeschooling program for the fall as well. It is right up my daughters alley! Glad that Haley is enjoying it.

    Well, crap! The homeschooling program is for 10-14 year olds. Or am I missing something?

    Thanks for the heads up! My kiddos are already in camp for July, but maybe next year! I love the idea of that school, I grew up playing in those woods, from when there were hardly any houses around at all!!!
