“This land loves children and blesses their spirit of wonderment, adventure, innocence, and creativity. Children have an instinctual sense of place in nature that comes forward given the opportunity to be in it. A great capacity to care and nurture living creatures and plants. Our Summer camps give them breathing room to be themselves as well as be apart of something greater than themselves. We thank you for joining us here, and may you be touched by its magic too.”
