"Our children no longer learn how to read the great Book of Nature from their own direct experience or how to interact creatively with the seasonal transformations of the planet. They seldom learn where their water comes from or where it goes. We no longer coordinate our human celebration with the great liturgy of the heavens.”
- Wendell Berry

Community camp days

 Enrolling Now for


Ages 6+

Our Community Camp Days provide nourishing outdoor adventures for youth on days when Columbia Public Schools are closed. Our aim is to provide enriching, soulful, and welcoming wilderness experiences for a diverse population of students, many of whom may not otherwise be able to access such opportunities. We are excited to create a nurturing, fun experience for youth and to provide parents with affordable, high-quality childcare. Space is limited, so sign up now!

Throughout the year, we also offer special day camps and overnight campouts:


Now a beloved tradition, Camp True/Folk (March 7—8, 2020) gives kids their own special adventure, while parents go enjoy the True/False Film Fest. We will also once again host our famous Spring Break Camp (March 2327, 2020).


You may also want to check out our summer camps for awesome explorations of local creeks, forests, farms, and more!
