    We meet in nature, incorporating natural play activities and child-caregiver connection within a small group to achieve overall wellness for everyone. Groups are structured for littles with & without disabilities or diagnoses. 

    If you have children in multiple age ranges or more than one child, please feel free to register them each separately. These are NON-SEPARATING groups- please plan to have a caregiver present.

    1x Drop-In or Bundled-Passes Available!

    Be sure to complete registration form to indicate dates of attendance. REGISTER at least 1 week prior to date attending! 

    If you are open to learning, would like to take yourself outside more often with your family, and are looking for simple activities that are easy to incorporate into your daily routines that will support the foundational skill development of your little human, please join us!

    Led by occupational therapist Amber Scherkenbach, MS OTR/L, you’ll have fun while engaging in developmentally appropriate play-based activities that are intentionally selected to allow babies and children to practice skills while having fun outdoors!   

    This is not a substitute for direct therapy.
