Herb Camp for ages 6-9

Cost - $250.00 for the week, includes a tasty and healthy snack plus daily herb popsicles.
Herb camps are offered every summer at our home and gardens in West Corinth, Vermont.
Camp is led by Kimberly Hotelling who has been teaching children about plants and nature for over 20years.
Teaching and inspiring children to use the plants around them for health, beauty and fun deeply connects them to their natural environment. Children feel a new sense of self-reliance and empowerment when they learn that they can use the plants growing all around them to help heal themselves and their families.
The week-long day camp for 6-9 yr. olds is a magical time of stories, gathering plants, making plant based potions, lotions and art, playing outside, swimming in the pond and having fun together with the natural world as our main focus.
Some examples of things we make are herb popsicles, lip balm, herb cough drops, pressed flower cards, herbal honey, herb tea, sleep pillows, smudge sticks, herb spritzers, herbal gummy bears and more.
At the week-long "Older Kid's Herb Camp" we can delve deeper into learning how to support our Health and Beauty with Plants, Flowers and Fun. We make plant-based health and beauty products (herbal first aid kit, teas, facial masks, dream pillows, henna tattoos, herbal honey, lotions and potions etc.), have fun cooking yummy snacks, make art, create an herb journal, explore outside and swim in our lovely spring-fed pond. It is empowering for children to learn to use plants in their backyard to heal themselves and their family and we have a super fun time while we learn!
This Summer 1 camp session is being held.
