​(For kids turning age 5 to 7 by December 31, 2024

​​​In this epic two-week day camp, your kids will enjoy mornings each day with friendly farm animals, like checking out the chickens, petting the rabbits, and running with the goats. And a special feature is a tethered horse ride on every camp Monday. Then after lunch, the Tribal Wisdom Academy Mentors will lead Natural Science Hikes in Story Forest on our 50-acre private forest estate, plus a daily craft at the Tool Town Workshop, and Wild Kids also get to build their own Fort City. And every FRIDAY is a special event day which adds a marshmallow campfire.  Join us on this incredible summer camp experience! Your child will make new friends and build memories that will last a lifetime. See the Registration Form HERE to get one or more of our 10 camp weeks this summer, on weekdays from 9am to 2pm. And new in 2024 is a "Combo Camper" option for 7-year-olds, with one week at the Wild Kid Camp and then a second week at the Big Kid Camp (with special staff guidance).

Adventure Maker Big Kid Camp!  Age 8 to 10
by Tribal Wisdom Academy  

​​(For kids turning age 8 to 10 by December 31, 2024) 

Big Kids learn to use a large variety of real tools in their own treehouse village. Each group (based on daily arrival time) has an outdoor woodshop table with their own team of adult Mentors. This camp is considered by our camp families to be the ultimate experience in human childhood . Big Kids do Blacksmithing and a variety of village projects during odd-numbered weeks, and do 5 new take-home Maker Projects during even-numbered weeks. The Mentors always listen to what each child is trying to create, and then we encourage your child make it work. So most kids also go home with projects of their own design. Our goal is that your child becomes a self-motivator and learns-by-doing. 

2024 Tribal Wisdom Alumni Camp 
11th or 12th birthday is anytime during 2024,
and your child must have attended Tribal Wisdom Camps in 2022 or 2023.

Alumni Campers have their own team of adult Mentors in their own clan. Together they take command of the Alumni Treehouse Village, and they build big projects, or invent their own daily take-home projects. During camp some Alumni may choose an internship as an MIT (Mentor-in-Training), or open a camp business, or choose to get a job in the Tribal Government. Alumni Camps are 1-week at a time. Choose any week or any combination of weeks. Alumni are mentored towards being good examples to the younger kids and to take responsibility for their own success in life.

These day camps are epic outdoor childhood at its best!  Please see the camp videos. 

In the heart and experience of your child, Tribal Wisdom Camps allow your child to rediscover the forest village life from which our world originates. Historically and still today it truly takes a village to raise a child, with the space to learn by doing, and the experience of making mistakes which leads to developmental success. The advantage of traditional human mind/body/social/emotional human development through analog experience is priceless.

ADULTS: Get a great summer job! Retired teachers, parents, and college students may apply to become a well paid TWA Summer Mentor, June 10 to August 23, or minimally June 14 to August 16.
