Our Programs

When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world. -John Muir

Our Forest school is offered from September to June. Camp Roots offers a seasonal holistic curriculum that is rooted in providing a meaningful hands-on experience with nature. Our curriculum nurtures a sense of stewardship, community and belonging among the children and families in our program. Our small class size, high adult/child ratios, and our seasonal holistic based curriculum provide an abundance of meaningful learning experiences for those that are in our programs. 


Camp Roots is located at Saint Edward State Park in Kenmore, WA. We have a 316 acre 100% outdoor classroom in which to cultivate a deep love and understanding of the natural world and of ourselves.  Our programs are set up to provide time to slow down, play, connect, learn and embrace the beauty and wonder of nature and friendships. Our student-led and inquiry-based approach allows for deep connections between what we are learning and what we are experiencing. The connections we form with nature and other humans are lifelong.  At Camp Roots we are passionate about creating lifelong stewards of nature and mindful humans, so that we may all be contributing to the greater good of our planet and of ourselves.
