REGISTRATION OPENS on June 15th FOR FALL 2024!

Watch the woods slowly go to sleep with us – the mornings will grow more crisp and frosty, the leaves will change and come tumbling down, the geese will call as they fly overhead, and we will spend more time around the campfire. Join us for our 14-week Fall Session and witness the magical transition from summer to winter through engaging activities, games, songs, stories, crafts, exploration, and community-building.

Please see our Registration Page for more info & our waitlist.

Be part of citizen science at KFNS!

Join our iNaturalist Project and help us to identify all of the more-than-human beings that we share the land with. You can use the Seek App to identify flora and fauna, and then post those findings to iNaturalist. If you found them within the boundaries of KFNS, they will get added to our project. Check out the project here!


Our Philosophy

In each of our programs, we strive to play, learn, and grow, and to build relationships to the land, each other, and ourselves through meaningful learning opportunities in a natural environment. Our team of dedicated and enthusiastic facilitators loves to learn alongside your child while they explore their curiosities and wonder at the ever-changing environment. We ask guiding questions that help to deepen a child’s curiosity and encourage opportunities to build confidence, resilience, and self-regulation. We do this through a child-led and play-based approach, and we follow an inquiry- or interest-based emergent curriculum (we dig deeper when and where there is interest with no predetermined “plan”).
