Adventure Learning Pods and Summer Camps

Belinda White
Early~Bird Registration ends May 18th! Welcome to Apple Star Learning. We believe that nature – inner and outer - provides the ‘classroom’, that children thrive with freedom to explore, get dirty, take risks, use their hands and whole bodies and hearts to understand their world. We foster curiosity, cooperation, confidence, and resilience with compassionate, attachment-style care giving and inquiry-based learning. We learn close to the wild, engaging our full selves in active, creative, attentive mentoring. We nurture hands-on learning, embodied play, a deep connection to self, other and the natural world by modelling needs-based communication, risk assessment, and awareness of others, human, and more-than-human. We’re excited to add Tinkering to our new Pod to offer children the chance to make a mess, make sense, make space and make believe using a wide variety of materials and tools. We come with years of experience as caregivers, nature connection, home learning, creative arts, literacy, wilderness facilitators with children and adults of all ages. Let’s chat!
