There is always lots of nice things to do like playing games, telling stories, making art using natural materials, learning about conservation, making friends and the most important spending time in nature learning so many incredible skills, surrounded by nice and friendly people.

Our son has severe autism and it is very difficult to go out with him as he gets upset. Doing this training and bringing the skills home has been trully life changing. The activities are amazing and being able to use them back home with my family has trully changed our lives.
