Tanglewood Day Camps, Ages 5 - 14

We think summer camp is the best thing ever, and the day camp programs at Tanglewood are designed to give campers an opportunity to interact with other young folks while forming a connection to the world around them. We offer traditional day camps for 5 – 11-year-olds and two specialty camps for 10 – 14-year-olds. All programs feature small groups (8 – 10 children) and 2 – 3 leaders with experience working with youth in outdoor education. Campers will have the opportunity to make discoveries and learn about making choices. The programs centered around creating safe spaces for learning, exploring, and growing.

Sprouts, Seedlings, & Saplings, Ages 5 - 11

Tanglewood’s day camps are unique experiences designed especially for 5-11-year-olds with a focus on nature connection, creative arts, practical skill-building, and social-skill building. 

Campers are grouped by age (Sprouts: 5-6, Seedlings: 7-8, and Saplings: 9-11) with specifically tailored activities and games to meet the needs of all. Each morning begins with the discovery of a theme that will tug at imaginations as the natural world is explored. The age-clustered “pods” operate as distinct units, following their own program plans during the week. 

Each day will bring new adventures that might include hiking, pond study, ecology exploration, creative art projects, engineering challenges, music, garden, and agriculture science, working with our goats, swimming, playing field games, or relaxing with new friends.
