Maris' Tree House
Summer Camps for Young Children
We will share delightful, gently paced mornings on the beautiful grounds of the
All Souls Interfaith Gathering in Shelburne. Peaceful meadows, rolling hills and quiet
woodlands overlooking Lake Champlain will be the setting for our mornings together.
Outdoors we will play, hike, picnic, build and tend fairy houses. Will we see a
real fairy? I hope so! We will explore and celebrate nature all around us. We’ll spy
chipmunks, squirrels, salamanders, frogs, squirmy worms and chirping birds. Don’t
forget friendly bugs ~ caterpillars, butterflies, dragonflies, grasshoppers, crickets and
In our light, spacious classroom we will do art projects, engage in music and
drama, enjoy free play with simple toys, share stories and wonderful children's
literature, and perhaps a little cooking and baking.
We emphasize kindness and gentle care for one another and for the plants
and creatures of the earth. The small class size of six children encourages sweet
friendships, ensures ample supervision, and supports individual care and attention.
