Camp Shine

Homeschool KidsFall enrollment open!

We are excited to provide Camp SHINE to our local homeschool community! We believe the best education is one taught in and by nature! Our program is dedicated to a whole-person educational approach and is a mind, body, and spirit retreat for kids in the beautiful hills of Martinez, CA.

At Camp SHINE we give your child a taste of farm life with ponies, chickens, pigs, horses, and bunnies! Your child will learn to tend to the animals including feeding, grooming, egg collecting, and helping to maintain and manage the seasonal garden. We also have an orchard and depending on what season we are in, we are exploring and picking apples, plums, and peaches! We often use what is happening on the land to lead the way in what to explore in each program. In each session we offer a nature-inspired art whether that is natural dying, nature weaves, learning to sew herbal pillows, herbal tea making, or pottery! We aim to create a positive and uplifting environment for kids to explore the great outdoors and to feel they can SHINE!
