Teens + Nature = TEENature: Nature Smart Camps

Teens + Nature = TEENature: Nature Smart Camps

One of Ireland's best Summer Camps!

 

We host TEENature Summer Camps at Crann Og Eco Farm, County Galway Ireland in July and August.

These camps were listed in The Irish Times as one of Ireland’s 50 best things to do with kids this summer!

TEENature is a natural progression for teenagers from usual outdoor experiences into a deeper connection with Nature. Teaching is done by way of the Art of Mentoring and among many other benefits, leads to enhanced self esteem and self confidence.

In this era of high rates of obesity in teenagers, attention disorders, behavioural problems and depression, Richard Louv’s research has led him to coin the term Nature Deficit Disorders in his book “Last Child In The Woods”.

By exploring wilderness through playfully challenging activities, basic survival skills and community living on a camp site.

Teamwork, problem solving, building resilience and competent risk taking while developing physical fitness and motor skills are all integral parts of living in Nature.

TEENature is tailored to inspire enthusiasm and curiosity to learn from Nature, discovering facts and mysteries. Games and exercises help to expand sensory awareness, focus the mind and enhance relaxation and intuition.

Howard Gardener, Professor of Education at Harvard University developed the theory of 7 multiple Intelligences in 1983 and recently added the 8th, ‘Naturalist Intelligence‘, which he calls “nature smart”!

The Author, Mentor and Tracker Jon Young points out that Nature Connection is the foundation of a healthy and vibrant Culture as it is really through Nature Connection that we can deeply connect to ourself and then others.

Or as Sir David Attenborough put it:

No one will protect what they don’t care about, and no one cares about what they’ve never experienced”.

New & Fresh

It’s been a busy winter for us 2015/16 renovating our Long House cabins and bathroom.  We have renovated and redecorated the cabins, replaced the beds and all new linen.

We have replaced one of our showers and added econo-taps to our showers and basins to further enhance our sustainability, reducing our water consumption yet further.

In addition we have renovated the main house and Yoga studio in preparation for a very busy year ahead.

We look forward to giving everyone a very warm welcome to Crann Og Eco Farm in 2016.
