Forts and Fire Gnomes

Please note: this is a 3-day camp that runs from Monday to Wednesday.


Our February break is designed to give students on break (follows Burlington’s school calendar) the opportunity to explore, play, and learn about the outdoors in winter. We’ll enter the world of our resident fire gnome, Dale, practicing the techniques of fire-making and cooking over an open flame. We’ll also build winter shelters, make wild teas, practice our winter survival skills and follow the footsteps of any creatures making tracks in the winter snow. The camp meets at Rock Point, where we can take advantage of our fire circles and enclosed shelters to stay cozy and safe in all temperatures. Spaces are limited, so please register early.

Forts and Fire Gnomes Registration

Health + Safety Forms

Health and Safety Forms do not need to be submitted with the registration form, but need to be received by prior to the start of a program (a $20 late fee applies to health and safety forms received after a program begins).

Financial Aid


We try and find a balance between hiring highly qualified and experienced teachers, keeping low ratios of staff to participants, and keeping our program costs low. Through our Financial Aid we aim to make our programs affordable and accessible to all participants, to not let money be a barrier to participation. Our financial aid to families provides that extra support to make participation possible. If you would like to be considered for financial aid, please fill submit the form linked below with your registration.
