Children will learn and play throughout Willowell’s forest, fields, and wetlands. Our activities will keep us warm as we learn from and explore the land. Some of our activities will include learning to build igloos, animal tracking, learning to start and tend fires, and engaging in winter-inspired hand-crafts and games. Join us as we discover our own inner flame, learn how people of the North have thrived on this land for centuries and follow the curiosity nature evokes in us.

Instructors:

Lizzie Bogosian:

Hi! My name is Lizzie Bogosian. As far as I can remember, I've had an enthusiasm for the outdoors and education. As a kid, I had a yearning to learn about the natural world— a guiding life theme. For over 10 years, I have worked with children in various photo-1-8educational settings, as well as taken several workshops to deepen my work with youth. I run a summer camp called Girls Camp Connect and an after school program called Girls Circle at the Wheeler Nature Park in South Burlington. What I love most about being in nature with children is witnessing and harnessing the natural curiosity that bubbles to the surface when in the presence of the elements. As a facilitator, I have the amazing job of being on a learning journey together with youth to see what nature has to offer and teach us. Being in nature allows us to be exactly ourselves!
