10 Woodside Lane Westport, CT 06880   203-557-4400 Earthplace Preschool: 203-557-3638

Counselor to camper ratio is at least 1:6, with minimum two counselors per group.

 

Trekkers are explorers! Campers in this group spend Mondays at Earthplace engaging in team building through pond studies, animal hall exploring, shelter building and more! During the rest of the week off-campus field trips focus on nature discovery and environmental learning. On Tuesdays Trekkers go canoeing, Wednesday are at a museum and Thursdays are spent hiking followed by a campout.

 

Each week during the Thursday night campout campers go on a night hike, pitch their own tents and cook their dinner over the campfire and make s'mores for dessert. Pick up from the overnight is at 9:00am on Friday morning, and there is no camp for Trekkers that day.
