Friends in the Wild- Animal Slumber Party
Children have the opportunity to experience a Slumber Party in the woods with
one of their special stuffed animals and even wear their pajamas! They will
be able to build tents and forts for them, their stuffed animal and maybe big
enough for their friends too.
What would an outdoor slumber party be without a campfire and snack! We’ll get
to do that too!

This Avon Hills Folk School TimberNook program runs in all weather conditions* so children must dress appropriately and bring their own food (pack lots!). This program is a great way to continue learning throughout the summer through play! It is also a great opportunity to complement therapy for children with motor, sensory or other developmental challenges. Our nature program is inclusive; we are a safe place for children and families of all abilities, backgrounds, belief systems, and sexual orientations. When deciding if this program 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. Staff allow children the opportunity to build conflict resolution skills, but will step in when required such as when safety is a factor.
- We expect children to maintain visual contact with 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).
- 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. 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 cost is prohibitive, please contact us to inquire about subsidy. Please get in touch if you or someone you know would like to subsidize a spot for families who cannot attend at full cost.
If this program is full, please email us to be added to the waitlist: [email protected]
REFUND POLICY- NO REFUNDS, CREDIT OR TRANSFER OF CLASS. Credit/refund is ONLY issued in the event that TimberNook Central MN has to cancel the program**; if a child has to miss a class due to illness, quarantine or any other reason there will be no refunds, credit or transfer of class.
*In the event of impending severe weather during a TimberNook program we will retreat from the woods to a safe place on campus until the weather passes.
**Severe weather causing the cancellation of a TimberNook program will result in a refund.
