Heartwood Break Camps give children the opportunity to experience the glory of St. Edward State Park throughout the changing seasons. We offer the following break camps: Mid-Winter Break in February and Spring Break in April.  Each break camp is unique in it's own way as the forest changes throughout the year, from the leaf piles in fall to the rushing streams in winter to the emerging greenery of spring. Break Camps are full of forest play, hiking, crafting and exploration. During the cooler days, the children warm their hands around a daily fire, share tea and play field games to build community and keep everyone warm. On warmer days the children will splash in spring puddles, roll down grassy hills and relax lakeside.  This camp is a 100% outdoors nature immersion program designed to nurture in children a sense of belonging in the natural world and to each other. Come adventure with us!

F.A.Q.S

Will my 5 year old be in a class of primarily 10-11 year olds?  

  • With our short term break camps, we do not have control over the ages of the students though if we discover your 5 year old is signed up for a break camp consisting of primarily older children, we will let you know and offer you the opportunity to drop the class at no cost if you feel it is not a good fit.
