Cumerberland Forest stewardship

Camp

Spring Break Camp
March 29th - April 1st
9am - 3pm

Are you looking for a fun, engaging, and meaningful Spring Camp for your child (8-13)? Consider Cumberland Forest Stewards, a 4-day outdoor camp consisting of activities such as active nature connection games, mapping & orienteering, and community service. On the first day, the kids will decide on how they would like to give back to their forest and act upon it daily during the rest of the program. Play, song, stories, and arts & crafts are meaningfully interwoven into each day to create a memorable experience and enhance one's understanding of what it means to be part of this ecological community.

If interested, register through the Cumberland Recreation Center. 

Cost $175

After-school program
Mondays 2:45- 5pm
Starting April 12th, 2021

All living things are connected. The more we interact with the natural world, and experience its intelligence and wonders, the more inspired we will be to protect it!

This afterschool program is built on two core objectives: deepening one's connection to nature and fostering an appreciation of community service. We will play games, learn new skills and engage in local projects that benefit our community. Children should be prepared to be outside for the entire program.

Program includes pick-up from Cumberland Community School. Pick-up is at 2:45 pm under the covered area between the youth center annex and the Beaufort Building.

If interested, register through the Cumberland Recreation Center. 

Cost $120/6 sessions (April 12 -May 17th) and $100 (May 31st - June 28th)

Family nature connection days

Come join us for this fun and engaging opportunity for you and your family to play outdoors and learn some truly fascinating things about the forest.

As we share knowledge about the natural environment, we help our children (and ourselves) gain a more profound understanding of interconnection, community, and stewardship. This is also an excellent opportunity to meet other families in a physically distanced format and build a network of active nature lovers.

Three sessions are being offered this spring: April 25, May 16 and June 20. Each session will have a different focus, so sign up for one or all three!

Children five and under are free but must still be registered in the same manner (the system will automatically waive the fee). Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Meet at the covered pavilion just inside the gate at Coal Creek Heritage Park.
