Earth Smarts Summer Camp | Kids Out and About Salt Lake City

Earth Smarts Summer Camp

Earth Smarts Summer is back again, focused on immersive and engaging nature education that shifts with the season. Organized in 90-minute blocks, these individual, topic-driven workshops can be taken as a full-day, half-day, or signed up as individual workshops on any day.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately. If you have a question about the activity itself, please contact the organization administrator listed below.

Earth Smarts workshops are centered in nature and play, creating the opportunity for children to deepen their sense of wonder and belonging to the Earth. Our planet’s wisdom cannot be taught with words or books alone. It must be revealed through direct experience.

This summer, your child could meet raptors through the HawkWatch program. They could create wildcrafted art projects with paint made from berries, flowers, and mud. Or spark their curiosity with a nature-infused scavenger hunt. They could explore nature with a camera, or forge a bond with the horses, goats, and chickens on the breakfast rounds.

Through these immersive experiences, your child will learn from the season of summer and develop a kinship with the land. They will come to understand, as our ancestors did, that all life moves in cycles and they are not separate from the circular reciprocity of nature.

Workshops are held in 90-minute blocks, four days per week, offering your child a variety of opportunities to connect with animals, people, spirit, and place. All workshops are for children ages 7-12, and younger children and their parents are welcome to attend our HawkWatch and Scales and Tails workshops. Weave a unique experience whether you choose one workshop a summer, all the workshops in a series, or every workshop for a week.
