What is Hearty Roots?

Hearty Roots is an esteem-building outdoor adventure program led by professional counselors & educators who also happen to be backcountry gurus.

We are purposefully portable; we operate sessions throughout Lincoln County on local and accessible land and water preserves. Guided by the power of relationships, the benefits of nature, and a practice of mindfulness, kids gain experiences that strengthen resilience and personal growth.

Oh, How We’ve Grown!

In August of 2018, we celebrated our first full year in operation, and have now surpassed the 100 campers mark!

What’s Next?

Looking forward to 2019, we've got exciting plans to expand our programming beyond week-long sessions and offer some new opportunities for kids to connect to nature and strengthen their interpersonal connectedness skills. With an aim to reach over 100 kids, we look forward to updating you on our developing after school mentorship club, mini coastal expeditions, and mother-daughter weekend retreats… all taking place YEAR ROUND in 2019!

Camp Activities

Campers at Hearty Roots will be immersed in outdoor adventures and exploration during their chosen session. No matter if they are first-timers or pros at camping, all will be supported and encouraged to try things outside of their comfort zone.

Digging Deeper

In addition to the outdoor component of our program, what makes us special is our social emotional curriculum that inspires kids to dig a little deeper, reflect on their actions, and allow themselves to be vulnerable enough to take chances that promote growth and resilience.
