Join us for our popular Barefoot & Buckets summer program at TimberNook Greater Baltimore! This program recreates classic play experiences from days gone by. A truly sensory week for the youngest campers, Barefoot & Buckets offer days of wet and often messy adventures that leave your children excited and asking for more.

This class is 100% outside and 100% fun! Dress your child in closed toed shoes and clothing they can climb, play and get VERY messy in. Children should bring a hearty snack, lunch, and a refillable water bottle from home. This is a drop-off program that runs Monday through Thursday from 9:00am to 1:00pm for children ages 4-10. We are capped at 18 children for this program. Staff Ratio is 1:6. You will receive a comprehensive welcome packet 1 day in advance with complete information on where to go, what to wear, what to bring, and what to expect.

There is a TimberNook Certified and Trained Provider onsite each day.

Other staff include: Occupational Therapists, Educators, Outdoor Enthusiasts, Master Level OT student interns and high school students interested in childhood education, the medical field, and the great outdoors.

We will be maintaining a wait list so please contact Carly at [email protected] to be added to the waitlist.

Children of all abilities are welcome. If you feel your child may need additional assistance or you would like to learn more to see if TimberNook is a good fit, please contact us. We can work together to make your child’s TimberNook experience a great one!

We look forward to Playing the TimberNook Way!

    What an amazing camp for our son. He came home excited for the next day. He loved playing in the creek and came home soaked and filthy; happy from a day well spent in the woods. The staff was wonderful. We can’t wait till our next camp!!

    Overall the Timbernook experience was phenomenal for my little one. We were part of the 6 week Tiny Ones program & my son absolutely loved it. He came out of his shell & made some great friendships all while expanding his imagination in nature.

    (We drove an hour to the program from PA & all I can say is it was so worth it. If you’re thinking about it for your child – DO IT! 🎉)

    My kids loved their TimberNook experience! They came home and talked about it all day. I will gladly pay the money to send them to something like this and get them outdoors and off the screens. Carly and Tracy were very friendly and welcoming. My kiddos can’t wait to go back for camp this summer!

    We’ve had such a wonderful experience in the Tiny Ones program, I’m so glad this exists in Harford County! My toddler enjoys her timbernook time and I like watching her explore and play, and getting ideas for creative materials to get for at home too. The nature classroom is perfect rain or shine, and I love TimberNook’s philosophy.

    TimberNook is truly an experience unlike any other for your child. My daughter comes home with plenty of stories about her adventures from the day, immediately asking when she’s going back again. Get them off the screens for the day and outdoors to create lasting memories and character building. Giving your kids the gift of TimberNook is surely one they’ll remember for years to come!
