Imagine children creating an entire village from scratch of their own design deep in the woods or having a tea party in the garden. Imagine having a mud construction party in giant mud puddles or testing out homemade boats in a shallow and slow-moving river.
At TimberNook, these experiences become a reality for children. TimberNook is a nature-based developmental program designed to foster creativity, imagination, and independent play in the great outdoors.
