COYOTE CAMP 2016 ~ Summer Day Camp-

Registration for 2016 begins February 29

Sponsored by Earthways Foundation and Ocean Song Farm and Wilderness Center, Coyote Camp is a continuing legacy which has been inspired in part by the former Ocean Song summer program, Discovery Day Camp. Coyote Camp was founded with the intentions of helping to awaken and inspire the wild hearts and dreams of children and to cultivate a deeper sense of respect, awareness, and appreciation for the earth and all of our relations.

We invite you to share a space in our circle as we embark upon a creative adventure that provides opportunities for experiential nature education. Our wise and playful coyote mentors cultivate a supportive and nurturing environment for children to learn, create, and grow! As we spend our days, exploring Ocean Song, a diverse ecosystem situated admist the magical coastal highlands of west Sonoma County, we engage in such activities as:

  • Wilderness exploration
  • Swimming
  • Tracking
  • Nature games
  • Creative arts
  • Herbal knowledge
  • Singing and storytelling
  • Bird language
  • Community building
