Forest Kindergarten

Forest Kindergarten

Katydid Camp for the littlest nature lovers.

For ages 4 to 6.

Woolly Bears Forest Kindergarten feeds children’s natural curiosity and inherent desire to learn through experience, experimentation, and play! Guided with love by expert mentors, children participate in a nourishing daily  flow that includes stories, songs, exploration, and basic wilderness skills. Their outdoor play builds motor skills, the ability to problem solve, and resilience. Children thrive while learning—naturally.
Our Forest Kindergarten programs are offered on Wednesdays in New Lebanon, New York, and Fridays at Bartholomew’s Cobble in Sheffield, Massachusetts.

Registration for Forest Kindergarten opens January 15 for returning participants, and February 1 for new participants.
