At our Earth Scouts camps, 6-12 year old students will learn to live in harmony with nature as they play sensory awareness games, follow the trails of wild creatures through the forest, forage for wild food and medicine, practice earth-based skills, hear stories, sing songs and have some good ole muddy wild adventures in the woods!

* Working together with peers in a positive way
* Keeping a positive attitude!

All of our programs feature:

* Staff trained as Coyote Mentors at the Wilderness Awareness School with 20 years combined experience mentoring children in nature
* Caring mentors who hold strong boundaries and foster a culture of respect (for ourselves, others, and nature!)
* First Aid and CPR certified Staff

Earth Scouts Camps run from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm and are open to children ages 6-12.

If your child is younger and not ready for the long day, check out our Wild Wanderer Camps for 4-6 year olds!

Kayla White Paintings at the Inn at Lynden @ Inn at Lynden | Lynden | Washington | United States

The Jansen Art Center, in partnership with the Inn at Lynden present an exhibit of Kayla White’s paintings, on display at the Inn at Lynden through June. Artwork is available for purchase through the Gallery Shop at the Jansen Art Center.

Kayla White grew up in the Methow Valley, WA and the outdoors and the history of the Cascade region have been a large source of inspiration for her work. She earned her M.F.A from Washington State University and has been included in various shows in the Northwest and was awarded a residency at Twispworks, in Twisp, Washington. Her work explores ideas of home, histories and community. She is curious about finding connections between seemingly disparate ideologies.
