Artemis Moon Girls Camp

Artemis Moon Girls Camp

  • Stony Kill Road Accord, NY, 12404 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

We cultivate self-assuredness by teaching girls survival skills and the ability to make useful and beautiful crafts. Girls learn fire-by-friction, use and care of wild edibles, primitive archery and bow-making, basketry, natural dyeing, wildlife tracking, use of natural fibers, navigation, shelter-building and other related skills.

We find that as girls become physically capable, strong and agile, they feel powerful and become increasingly confident and vocal.

We’ve also found that creative physical pursuits such as circus appeal to girls, and provide the kind of collaborative environment that elicits healthy risk-taking. We foster girls’ physical and creative development by teaching acro-balancing, poi (traditional Maori juggling), slack-line walking and other fun physical pursuits. We also foster self-expression and creative development through singing and song-writing, nature-journaling and drawing, storytelling and other expressive arts.

A Typical Day at Artemis Moon

A typical day begins with welcoming games, followed by an opening circle. Girls, parents and staff say what they feel thankful for that day, and sing a song. Parents depart and girls and staff venture into the forest.

In the forest we play warm-up games and then settle into a focused activity. Girls work in small teams to accomplish a task, such as building a fire that is strong enough to burn brightly, untended, for five minutes. We then debrief the activity, helping girls articulate what they learned about themselves, their unique styles of facing challenges, and the natural world.

We then have lunch together, explore the woods, and play team-building games like creating a human obstacle course. In the afternoon, we do physical activities that teach intuition, agility and sensory awareness, such as having participants put on blindfolds and follow the sound of a beating-drum. As the girls face these safe but risky-feeling challenges, we tell them about the unique leadership qualities we see emerging in each of them, helping them notice and develop these capacities.

Meanwhile, elders work nearby on advanced art projects and wilderness skills, such as making bows, creating large weavings and making cooking pots. When the girls arrive back at the main camp, they see and are inspired by the work of these mature women who ask them evocative questions to fuel group discussion, like “Who is a woman that you admire, and why?” The girls make crafts as they talk, such as weaving nets for holding water-bottles, or making a natural remedy like an herbal balm.

We finish the day by holding a closing circle with families in the afternoon, during which girls will share stories about their day, and staff offer reflections about the growing group. At the end of the day, after the girls and parents leave, elders stay to support the program coordinator and staff as they debrief the day and learn more about ways they can grow further.

Artemis Moon Activities May Include:
– Archery/bow making
– Singing and music making
– Playing awesome games
– Making friction fire
– Harvesting and using wild foods

Screech Owl: 3 Autumn Sundays (for children)

Screech Owl: 3 Autumn Sundays

This fall, we will gather in the forest to play games, tell stories around the fire, craft, track, build and so much more!

We warmly welcome you to Screech Owl: Autumn Soaring. Together, we will safely explore the elements and build lasting friendships with each other and the land as we nurture the village the children have enriched each summer at camp.

Children walk away from Screech Owl feeling at home in nature and at home in themselves. Our staff is filled with seasoned teachers and naturalists who meet children where they are and help them to find harmony and joy both in the group and in the forest.

Each day begins with a morning circle where thanksgiving, songs and silly movement games bring us further into our bodies. During the day we’ll play amongst the trees, create bridges across the stream, build fairy houses and explore nature’s treasures. We’ll also take plenty of time during the day to recharge with snacks, rest and lunch. At the end of the day, with leaf and flower crowns on our heads, our faces painted and smiles on our faces, we’ll return, energized from a day in the woods!

Screech Owl is where your child will:

  • Play and explore the beautiful outdoors.
  • Experience a variety of wilderness skills and crafts, story and song.
  • Practice awareness, quiet-mind, telling the story of their day, animal forms, curiosity, exploration, and gratitude.
  • Be in a nurturing environment to build self-awareness, confidence and group unity.

Our Screech Owl instructors are experts in guiding children to safely and freely move in the direction of their own curiosity.

For: Boys & Girls ages 4 – 7.

Dates: 3 Sundays

  • Sunday, October 1, 2017

The Soirée on the Railway

The Soirée on the Railway

Traveling through the midsummer Catskill Mountains on a vintage train, we invite you to join us for The Soirée on the Railway, a lavish gathering to honor the bygone glamour of train travel to the Catskills’ famed resorts.

Arrive dressed to the nines at the Ulster and Delaware Railroad for a journey through the bucolic landscape, coasting by scenery only visible from these heritage tracks.

As the trailing sun sets, champagne will pour as Brushland Eating House presents their Catskills-inspired menu, a roving meal comprised of small plates to enjoy while wandering the train cars. When the train reverses course, the evening will culminate in the open-air car, where we'll gather for a live musical performance under the full moon.

Travel back in time with us for a true celebration of the Catskills then and now.

The Soirée on the Railway will benefit The Catskill Center whose mission it is to protect and foster the environmental, cultural, and economic well-being of the Catskill region.
