    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!
