mission

Sprig programs provide the opportunity for children to grow closer to themselves, their community, and the earth through genuine connection with nature. Our nature immersion programs take place fully outdoors and honor nature as a teacher and guide to deeper learning.

It is our belief that when children are given the opportunity to navigate unstructured time outdoors, in play, children construct learning opportunities unique and meaningful to them. Therefore, a sprig of learning is grown out of each nature experience!

In all Sprig programs, we strive for and value respect, diversity, inclusion, and nonviolent communication. Participants walk away with a deeper connection to their inner voice and personality, a genuine relationship to the natural world, and close friendships within a community.

 
 

“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in.”

-Rachel Carson

 

“Even as I grew older, whenever I felt unease in a social setting, I knew I could walk out into nature and be myself.”

-Erin Kenny
