Barefoot and Buckets – TimberNook Northwest Oregon

💙 Barefoot & Buckets

🔷 August 8 -11th, 9-2pm, Ages 4-9

🔷 This program recreates classic play experiences from days gone by. Barefoot & Buckets offer days of wet and often messy adventures that leave your children excited and asking for more! Daily themes include Bug Detective, Woodland Animal Homes, Color Exploration, Sensory Stations, and being in a giant foam experience, a fun water play battle! TimberNook experiences are designed to help your child become more creative, confident, coordinated, & independent.

Registration includes:

  • 4 days of unique nature-based TimberNook programming. 9-2pm
  • 20 hours in nature to give your child extended time to fully engage in the play theme and outdoor space.
  • Exclusive access to over 10+ acres of natural space (streams, orchards, rolling hills, meadows, forest).
  • Daily developmental summary with photos.
  • The peace of mind knowing that you are supporting your child’s development and giving them an epic experience that they will talk about for the days and weeks ahead.

Is the program a good fit for my child? Please take the following into consideration:

  • TimberNook staff maintains visual contact with children, but may be out of arm’s reach. Staff allows children the opportunity to build conflict resolution skills, but will step in when as required such as when safety is a factor.
  • We expect children to maintain visual contact of a TimberNook staff person, stay within the designated (unfenced) boundaries of our site, and manage their needs (such as eating, drinking fluids and using the restroom).
  • If the child requires 1:1 support to attend, you must provide the support person as we are unable to meet this level of supervision within the program. If your child requires additional support, please contact us to make a plan.

    Barefoot & Buckets was our first TimberNook program and each day with different sensory activities was memorable! Nicole, Laura, and the team are so kind and communicative. The daily summaries with photos are fun to look through and help spark conversation about the day. Summer weather can be tricky with an outdoor program so we dressed in appropriate layers, wore a swimsuit under clothes and included a towel on water play days, applied sunblock upon arrival, wore a sunhat, and packed extra fruits to help stay hydrated and energized. We look forward to future offerings!

    This program is so incredibly special. My 8 year old son loved it! To be able to play freely and get creative while in nature is all I wanted for him. He had a blast outside with these camp counselors. It’s a must do camp! Thank you Nicole and all of the other instructors!!!❤️
