arts & crafts, and earth-centered activities all day! 


Check back soon for a full schedule of activities.

Genis Schmidt and Shantal Alonso will be co-leading and introducing spiritual activities associated with the four elements (Water, Earth, Air, and Fire) throughout the day. Throughout the day we will sing, dance, create, share, and make music. There will be yoga presentations and book readings. We will also have some time for children to share how their light shines. Toward the end of the day we will bring the elements into ourselves through food. 

Genis Schmidt has been leading seasonal celebrations for over seven years and has taught outdoor education and nature-based spirituality to children. She is a certified Dances of Universal Peace (DUP) Leader and has been trained in teaching DUP to children.
