THE EMBERS EFFECT

 
Extensive research has shown proven benefits of spending time outside, away from classrooms, four walls and electronics. At Embers we believe in the power of nature to nurture and grow young minds and to encourage respect and responsibility for our environment and for our own health.
 
Whether your group is with us for one day or one week, time spent at Embers will give each member of the group wonderful memories and, a renewed vigor and enthusiasm for their own development.
