Program Details

Escape to a world of adventure with Timbernook Castaways Summer experience! Join us for a weeklong journey as you and your fellow campers are stranded on a deserted island, ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery and teamwork. With a focus on hands-on activities and exploration, you’ll have the opportunity to develop your problem-solving skills, creativity, and leadership abilities. This experience will set your survival instincts and imagination to the challenge! Climb trees, build a shelter to withstand the elements, and embark on a thrilling scavenger hunt through the dense forest. With a supportive and experienced staff by your side, the only limit to your adventure is your imagination. The theme each day will change, but your child will consistently come home messy and happy. Pack your bags and join us on an unforgettable journey to becoming a true Timbernook Castaway!

General Info

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. TimberNook Central Virginia’s summer experience runs from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm and is designed for children ages 5-12. Children will be grouped with peers similar in age after registration. We may be able to accommodate siblings of different ages, so please reach out to us prior to registration if this is the case.

Inclusivity is a top priority at TimberNook Central Virginia. We provide a welcoming environment for children and families of all abilities, backgrounds, and belief systems.

Please note that campers will need to bring their own food and water, and families will be informed of any allergies before camp begins.

Consider the following when deciding if TimberNook Central Virginia is a good fit for your child:

  • We maintain a ratio of 6 children to 1 adult.
  • Our staff takes a hands-off approach, allowing children to develop their conflict resolution skills while maintaining visual contact and stepping in when safety concerns them.
  • Children must always keep a TimberNook staff member in sight, stay within the designated boundaries of our site, and take care of their own needs (such as eating, drinking, and using the restroom).
  • We accommodate children with varying abilities and unique needs, so please reach out to us prior to registration if your child requires additional support.

Financial Terms

However, we offer the flexibility to reschedule for a different camp date up to 6 weeks prior to the originally scheduled start date. Feel free to reach out to us for assistance with rescheduling. Thank you for your understanding!

There will be no refunds for cancellations due to acts of God (including weather related cancellations), natural disasters, or epidemics. We recognize that such events are unlikely to occur; but if one does, we will issue credit vouchers for the full amount paid for the affected program.

In the unlikely event that we have to cancel a program, campers will be offered a 100% credit. Refunds or credits are only available if TimberNook Central Virginia cancels the program and will not be offered for individual absences.
