Extreme Art – TimberNook Northwest Indiana

Paint The Forest this week with TimberNook Northwest Indiana’s Extreme Art day camp! This week, nature is their canvas!! Your child will collaborate with others to create grand-scale works of art from scratch! If your child will enjoy art experiences embedded in child-led play, then this is the
program for them! Expect forts and flags, forest “beautification”, body art, costume creations and exploding paint!

Please read this information carefully prior to registering your child.

This nature program is for children ages 8-12, but the ages may be flexible to accommodate siblings- please send us an email prior to registration if this is an issue for you. This summer camp runs 9am-1pm. 

Our program is inclusive; we are a safe place for children and families of all abilities, backgrounds, and belief systems. Children are required to bring their own food; families will be notified of allergies prior to camp.

  • REFUND POLICY-  No Refunds. In the event that we have to close due to lockdown, you will be offered a 90% refund or 100% credit.  Credit is ONLY issued in the event that TimberNook Northwest Indiana has to cancel the program. If a child has to miss a class for any reason there will be no refunds. Further refund details can be e-mailed as requested. 

When deciding if summer camp will be a good fit for your child, please take the following into consideration:

We maintain a 6:1 child/adult ratio where the role of the adult is to step back and tune in.  TimberNook staff maintains visual contact with children but may be out of arm’s reach. Counselors allow children the opportunity to build conflict resolution skills and sense of independence, stepping in when safety is a factor.

  • Children maintain visual contact of a TimberNook counselor, stay within the designated boundaries of our site, and manage their needs independently (such as eating, drinking fluids, and using the restroom). Please no children in diapers.
  • We understand that children are individuals and sometimes have varying abilities and unique needs. If your child requires additional support, please contact us to make a plan prior to registering.
  • We are outside 100% of the time with a safe location available in case of severe weather.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch. If you are having difficulty with registration or payment, please try a different browser (chrome is the suggested browser) and clear your cookies/cache. If this program is full, email to be added to the waitlist:

An email will go out the week prior to camp with more details about what to expect.

Thank you for supporting TimberNook Northwest Indiana!

    5 STAR CAMP for all ages!!!! My 4.5 yr old daughter attended Barefoot & Buckets camp this week end LOVED it! This camp truly inspires their imaginations, allows kids to learn outdoors through play and working through things in an uninhibited environment. They did a fantastic job getting the kids excited with their creative and unique themes each day and we would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone looking for a summer camp experience like no other! My daughter is also T1 Diabetic and they took extremely good care of her all week. This would a huge bonus for us!

    This program is awesome! My kids had the most wonderful time. My 12 yr old said, “I knew it would be fun, but I had no idea it would be THAT much fun!”
