Nature Nuts is a unique outdoor and environmental education program for children K-2 on Bainbridge Island. Participants are encouraged to experience adventurous play, free exploration, and guided field investigations that engage youth in meaningful interactions with nature, support whole child development, and foster a connection to our community.
Our after school program offers daily field excursions throughout the school year. Exploring a wide variety of locations on and near Bainbridge Island while providing hands-on learning experiences for youth, with flexible options to join us one, two, or five days per week!
Camps run throughout the year, and offer opportunities to explore local ecosystems and learn new skills in a fun-filled week that focuses on communication, teambuilding, and Next Generation Science Standards.
Prices are based on how many days there are in an after school session or camp, as well as how many hours per day. Currently, we offer after school rates in 5-6 week sessions for each day of the week and a drop-in rate. Camps offer full day pricing as well as a daily rate. Discounts are available for siblings or when you refer a friend. Scholarships are available in partnership with Helpline House. Registration for programs remain open until filled.
