This program is designed to offer public school children a consistent weekly immersion
into the mysteries of the natural world. Jay Leavitt, founder of Nature's Chorus summer
camp at Great Hollow Wilderness School, facilitates the program. Emphasis is on inspiring
and supporting the growing passion of young naturalists ages 8 through 15. Topics covered
will range from sensory awareness, animal tracking, plants, scouting, field ecology,
survival skills, birds, and much, much more! A sincere interest in the natural world is
the only prerequisite, so bring your questions and share your own nature stories as we
celebrate the Earth's mysteries and each other's own unique passions!
Natural Wonders Weekends!
The campfire will be stoked for this unique Winter/Spring series designed to offer
children, ages 8-15, the opportunity to immerse themselves into a magical weekend journey
into the fields, forests, and wetlands of Great Hollow. Jay Leavitt, founder of Nature's
Chorus summer camp at Great Hollow Wilderness School, facilitates the program. There are
six separate weekends, each with independent enrollment, and each with a unique theme as
listed below. All weekends will entail a wonderful blend of natural history, survival
skills, outdoor exploration, animal tracking, storytelling, nature awareness games,
outdoor cooking and camping, and much more. Each weekend takes place at Great Hollow
Wilderness School in New Fairfield. The fun begins at 9:00 am on Saturday morning and ends
at 12:00 noon on Sunday. This series is especially designed for children who have a strong
passion for the wonders of the great outdoors and who are excited at the idea of camping
out around the fire, even during some of the cooler months.
