WHITE PINE FOREST SCHOOL

White Pine Forest School is a unique opportunity for Indiana families looking for preschool, kindergarten, or homeschool enrichment with a Nature Connection focus. Our camps are deeply empowering, life changing and loads of fun! Our home campus is tucked in the village of Rocky Ripple next to the Central Canal and Butler University along the riparian corridor of the Wapahani River. Our mentors utilize a customized version of the 8 Shields Nature Connection model to guide children in finding their place, both in community and in the natural world. Come experience the regenerative power of a life connected to environment, community, and ancestry
