“I write to thank you for opening one young Washingtonian’s eyes to the natural world… his every conversation is peppered with organic stories of flora and fauna due to your inspiration. Go Nuts!” – Governor Jay Inslee, former Nature Nuts Grandparent
The mission of Nature Nuts is to provide a space for the children in our community to reap the developmental benefits of outdoor learning and free play in a safe and immersive way while cultivating a love and awe of nature.
Focusing on communication, team building, and the Next Generation Science Standards, Nature Nuts offers unique outdoor programming on and near Bainbridge Island. Sharing fun, hands-on learning experiences where participants are encouraged to discover through adventurous play, free exploration, and guided field investigations, and facilitated by experienced instructors from Peacock Family Services.
In order to meet the diverse needs of our community, Nature Nuts offers a variety of programming that runs seasonally throughout the year. Click to learn more about our after school and day camp programs!
