TerraTime is different and we don't think that's a bad thing.

We offer outdoor enrichment opportunities, designed with the TIME & SPACE required for children to explore, create, build, design, problem-solve, take risks, and use their imagination – all while experiencing the WONDER OF OUTDOOR PLAY.

Each TerraTime opportunity encourages children to develop a range of school readiness and life-long learning skills.

We maintain small group sizes with a ratio of one team member to every eight children.

“Over half way through the week and the kids just can’t get enough... they come home happy, dirty, and exhausted! It makes this Momma's heart very happy!  Seriously, it is the best summer camp secret in Muncie.  If you've never heard of it it's worth checking out!!” 

– Nicole, mom of 7 & 4-year-old

Our Summer Programs are designed for children ages 4-11 years old. These drop-off programs run for one week, Monday-Friday from 10 am to 2 pm.

Our programs take place on private property in an enriching play environment.  Children engage their senses and experience the wonder of discovery while developing important skills.

 

While the specific outcomes may differ to some degree, there are several elements that are key to all TerraTime outdoor experiences. These include spontaneous play, cooperative effort, self-awareness, social skills, motor planning, problem-solving, sensory integration, creativity, curiosity, self-reliance, belonging, empathy, and increased knowledge and appreciation of the natural environment.

 

Each day has a theme that is woven through each play prompt, loose parts, and materials. Children use natural and man-made materials to create, explore, and problem solve. 

 
Special Events vary throughout the year and provide children with a unique learning opportunity, all while experiencing the beauty of the changing seasons and being exposed to a variety of weather conditions.

Friday Fun Days

Friday Fun Days are drop-off programs designed for children, ages 4-11 years old, to experience three hours of outdoor fun.

These special days are filled with engaging play prompts that encourage creativity, movement, and child-driven learning.

 

While daily themes are planned and guided by a team of adults, our respect for a child’s interests and ability to self-guide through their experiences is very important. It is magical when children can learn and grow through open-ended free play and self-direction.  Usually, the materials and the prompts provided find their way into a child’s play in ways we least expect it.
