To educate and nurture children, youth, and adults using the natural environments of field, stream, and forest as a medium for building self-esteem, challenging people with new experiences and creating opportunities for cooperative learning.
Woodberry Crossing was started in 1997 as a non-profit organization. Wood berry Crossing gives urban children, youth, and families the opportunity to broaden their vision and nderstanding of life through meeting and interacting with a variety of people, animals, and the natural world.
Over 100 acres of woods and fields, hiking paths filled with ferns and mosses, deer, raccoons and foxes, butterflies, birds and even some Baltimore Orioles! There is a pond and two streams with tadpoles, fish, turtles, and frogs. In the pasture, you will find farm animals that include donkeys, emus, sheep, goats, turkeys, chickens and even a llama. You might even find a some cats and dogs running around.
There is a playground with sand and enough room to build forts. On hot summer days the swimming pool is open with picnic tables near by. Come evening, the campfire ring is lit and there is plenty of space for tents to allow for outdoor sleeping. There are indoor facilities that house a preschool playroom, conference area, kitchen, library, craft area with a workshop in pottery studio. There are indoor sleeping arrangements for up to fifteen people and restrooms with showers.
We have a dedicated staff that is qualified in early childhood and elementary school teaching, parenting skills, and group dynamics. Additionally, we have numerous teenage and adult volunteers.
