Our Castaways camp is off to a great start! Today, our young explorers began creating their own world on a deserted island. They constructed primitive shelters, forged new alliances, negotiated, and even engaged in a few pinecone battles!

The first day of TimberNook Summer Experiences is officially in the books! Our group of twelve young explorers wholeheartedly immersed themselves in the Billy Goat Gruff Storybook by constructing bridges, and forts, and engaging in troll battles. We still have limited openings available for the Enchanted Experience, which is scheduled to run from June 19th to June 23rd and is exclusively for adventurers between the ages of 4-7. This 100% outdoor and screen-free program promises to be an incredibly fun and safe experience for all.

A BIG Welcome to Riley! Riley grew up in Goochland, Virginia, running barefoot through the woods and exploring the beauty of the natural world. Recently graduated from high school, she is pursuing a degree in Creative Writing and Family and Human Development at Southern Virginia University. She loves to encourage curiosity in children and cherishes seeing the joy on their faces as they create or discover something for themselves. Riley is often found creating art with her younger siblings, backpacking on the Appalachian Trail, kayaking on the James River, or reading a book hidden under a tree. She hopes to inspire children with a love of the outdoors and learning, which she believes will lead them to accomplish great things.

Angela Hanscom is a Paediatric Occupational Therapist and founder of TimberNook. In her fantastic Ted Talk, β€œThe REAL reason children fidget β€” and what we can do about it" she argues that children are not getting enough movement throughout the day. She says that children should be playing outside as soon as they get home from school. Angela argues "twenty minutes of movement a day is not enough! They need hours of play outdoors in order to establish a healthy sensory system and to support higher-level attention and learning in the classroom."

Welcome, Kathleen!

Welcome, Kathleen to the Pace Academy team as our new lead TimberNook Guide! Kathleen and her family moved to Virginia with a mission to increase access to nature-based education and promote the preservation of childhood through child-led, emergent learning. Growing up camping, hiking, and spending time outdoors, Kathleen understands the importance of giving children these same opportunities. In 2022, Kathleen opened her own forest school for preschool-aged children, Chesterfield Nature Academy. With a background in fitness and a passion for promoting healthy habits, Kathleen believes that nature-based education is one of the best ways to ensure children have the skills they need to lead a healthy life. Kathleen holds an MS in Business Technology Management from Stevenson University, was a certified personal trainer for over 10 years, completed her RYT-200 in 2016, and completed her Nature-Based Teacher Training course through ERAFANS in 2022. We're excited to have Kathleen on board and look forward to the wonderful experiences she will bring to our TimberNook program!
