Coronavirus (Covid-19) Information 2020
Barefoot Kids is fully committed to protecting the health and welfare of our families, staff, and community.
Thankfully, we are in a unique position during this outbreak. As an outdoor camp, our supplies and equipment are currently in storage and safe from any contamination. Any items we use are ALWAYS broken down and cleaned before storing for the next day. Our bathrooms are ALWAYS cleaned before kids arrive and after they leave. It's just our standard policy.
We have ALWAYS limited our program to 8 children per age group. Our methodology was to create an environment that was warm and personal, not overwhelming. This means that we are already in a position to easily catch any issues immediately.
We will be sticking firmly to these guidelines going into the 2020 summer season. Our families can feel safe in the knowledge that we create a space easily monitored for all to enjoy. Additionally, this year it also means our philosophy can help ease anxiety children will inevitably carry into the summer. Our environment will be back to the basics, kids being kids, and getting everyone back to normal.
For any families struggling, please email info@thebarefootkids.com. We will work with you in any way we can help.
Healthcare workers: If we can help you with transportation or any support, please email info@thebarefootkids.com
We will be extending our discount until April 1st.

At Barefoot Kids our mission is simple. We create a space for children to immerse themselves in imagination, unlocking the awesome power of learning through play.

A place where electronics are not invited and magic will come alive.
 

We believe in childhood.

 

Our summer camp is small by design, surrounding kids with a warm hometown atmosphere. This special environment helps children slow down, make new friends, develop their inner voice, and invent space that is truly their own. Let's return our kids to a simpler time when childhood reigned supreme.

 

imagination is freedom
Let them play!

Why Play?

Play is vital for healthy development in children of ALL ages. Unfortunately, adult-directed and designed activities, although well intentioned, has come at a great cost to child development. Deterioration of flexibility, the fluidity of thought, problem-solving, negotiation and navigation have all robbed children of the experiences they need to succeed, often in the name of excellence. 

 

Why the messy play?

Developing senses through sensory activities are a component of Barefoot Kids. Children interpret and express almost exclusively through the physical body. Encouraging kids to not worry so much,  letting the stress go about "keeping clean" while nurturing healthy absorption of imagination and fun. Cleaning up then becomes part of the fun, allowing them to feel they are getting to participate in something really special too!

 

Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning.  Play is really the work of childhood.   -Fred Rogers
