Collage Announces Winter TimberNook Camps

October 17, 2017

For the first time in Northeast Florida, TimberNook’s internationally recognized programs will be offered to community children from 4 to 11 years old during their Winter Break from school. Two sessions will be offered.

Knights and Dragons, Winter TimberNook Camp, Dec. 26-29.

Collage offers Knights and Dragons as its Winter TimberNook Camp, Session #1, Dec. 26-29, 2017.

Session #1, Dec. 26 – 29, 2017: Knights and Dragons

What happens when a sheepish knight and a not-so-fierce dragon fight for the very first time? Well, it’s no ordinary battle since the knight has to go to the castle library to learn about dragon-fighting and the dragon must dig through his ancestor’s things to find out how to fight a knight!

Children will dive deep into their imaginations, as they become knights, outlaws, maidens and more in this medieval world in the woods. Children will create a life-sized castle and outlaw camps and then “battle” to defend their side of the woods. They may also practice jousting, dig for dragon eggs or even paint with catapults. This program is sure to inspire and create lasting memories for years to come.

During the second session of Winter TimberNook Camp, Food, Glorious Food, kids will learn how to create composts and make artful creations from compost food to display in the museum they build for parents to visit.

Session #2, Jan. 2 – 5, 2018: Food, Glorious Food

Who knew you could get creative with compost!…..but when friends gather to share a meal, what’s left over after they dine can serve a number of purposes. During this TimberNook session, children will have the opportunity to experience composting in both traditional and non-traditional ways. As with all TimberNook experiences, an array of sensory experiences will be provided as well as an opportunity for some big body work on a group construction project. Children will delight in the excitement and social benefits of working together toward a common goal. Parents will be invited to tour the site and partake in the fun on the last day of camp. And, as is always integral to “The TimberNook Way,” there will be plenty of uninterrupted free time woven into each day!


They will use a wide array of lose parts to construct a museum.  These may include small logs, wood cookies, planks, bark, rope, pine boughs, bricks, hay bales, etc.  The goal is to create a structure with enough space for everyone to display their Compost Creations.

Register at TimberNook Northeast Florida.

Each session runs from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Cost is $225/session. Maximum enrollment for each session is 24 kids, so register early!
