After years of hosting nature camp for kids and hearing many parents and community member remark they would love to attend Wind Dance, we are offering a weekend of nature camp session for Adults!
Join us for an exciting environmental education experience for grown ups at Wind Dance Farm and Earth Education Center IN Berkley Spring, WV. Our home base will be the educational center, an off-grid timber frame construction surrounded by a small farm and forest. Our weekend retreat will feature field studies, nature craft, wilderness skills and guided time in the garden and will the farm animals.
Classes are typically one or two hours in duration with most of the time spent outdoors or in hands-on activities. Structure is informal, with questions and input from other instructors and attendees encouraged. Our volunteer instructors include several former campers who are now professionals in the sciences. Field investigations will be complemented by discussions, workshops, and several craft activities.
A wonderful opportunity for:
Teachers and Educators looking to gain skills, understanding, and lesson plan ideas from their peers that they can pass on in their classes. Retired life-long learners. Garden club members. Home schooling Moms and Dads. College-age counselors from the Summer sessions for kids, learning from their elder educators (and teaching some classes themselves). Folks from all walks of life looking for an purposeful, educational vacation.
Tent camping and campers welcome w/o hookup
