I can express myself more and learn more about plants and animals.  I can be more happy and positive in my life away.  I really make friends anywhere now!  It is probably the funnest thing I have ever done!

Herbal Medicine Day Camp

Our Herbal Medicine Day Camp is aimed at youth ages 7-11 and/or entering grades 1-6. In 2022, this camp ran in Canticle Farm, Oakland. Over the course of the week, we covered plant botany and identification, practiced meditation and nature journaling, and created several herbal medicine projects such as sprays, salves, lip balms, and lotion. We dove into the basics of plant medicines, while exploring outside in local parks and gardens.

Growing Oaks (formerly Wildflower Day Camp)

Our Growing Oaks Circles are perfect for kiddos ages 7-11 and/or entering grades 1-6. The 2022 Growing Oaks Circle (formerly Wildflowers Day Camp) ran in Joaquin Miller Park, Oakland. Participants made herbal medicines, tracked animals, made nature-based crafts, and learned beginning wilderness skills. Woven into each day were  stories and songs about personal and group care, earth-care, connection, and play. This camp is also a great way for students to get a taste of what Gaia Passages does in our afterschool programs. Any student who loves the outdoors and wants to learn crafts and some basic earth skills will enjoy this camp. Back in Summer 2023!
