At the heart of TimberNook programming is the philosophy that children flourish when given the time and space to play in sensory-rich, experiential learning environments. Bringing exploration and nature together results in a truly unique way to reach children at a key point in their development.

TimberNook’s unique program offers the ultimate sensory experience for children ages 18 months to 12 years, challenging the mind, body and the senses through meaningful outdoor play opportunities. Our program is run by a licensed pediatric occupational therapist, Sherry Kenin, who has over 25 years working with children and a great love for the outdoors.

Minute Man Arc has created seasonal programs that are both inclusive and adaptive to children of all abilities and ages. Week long programs will run over school break weeks and in the summer. Check out the TimberNook website for additional details:
