Our philosophy starts with the simple belief that kids are capable of incredible things. Our job is to nurture that ability; our goal is to support kids' healthy development. Play is how kids learn--here, it is in both a STEM-rich environment and inviting outdoor experience.

Did you know that our ancestors started fires just by rubbing two sticks together? Join primitive-skills expert, Tim “PrimiTim” Swanson, to learn and practice the ancient skill of fire-making. He’ll show us different methods of producing a spark, from sticks to bow drills to flint. Then practice making a spark yourself, and breathing that spark into a small flame. All ages are welcome to participate at whatever level you are comfortable with and adult supervision is required.

He works with all ages encouraging people to connect with the earth by learning and practicing ancient living skills. Please visit his site at www.facebook.com/primitimswanson for more information.
