School break Day camps

experiencing the wonders of nature during school breaks

We are INSPIRED by the Reggio-Emilia approach.

The Reggio Emilia approach is place-based and child-led; every day is based on how your child wants to discover the fascinating world of nature.

At Blue Heron Day Camps, your child will spend most of their time outside learning from nature.
Children learn to interact safely with nature; turning over rocks and logs, climbing downed trees, skipping rocks in the creek, and catching butterflies and insects in nets.
