Sprouts is designed to give young children quality time outdoors in natural settings, with gentle, knowledgeable guidance from experienced Taproot Teachers.
At the beginning of each day, we gather the kids for Circle Time, where the group will say hello, introduce the day’s activity to the kids, and invite them to share what’s on their minds. We often incorporate an active game, yoga, dancing, songs, poems, or stories to this time. Then we’ll head out for the exploration and adventure in that day’s location–City Park, Harvest Preserve, Fossil Gorge, Turkey Creek, and other places TBD. Sprouts Camp gives little ones a great introduction in learning to use their own voice and communicate effectively and kindly with others. The days’ exact plans vary, but you can be sure Sprouts Camp time will be filled with nature, friendship, and growth.
