Tribal Wisdom Academy Summer Camps: TWA Kids are makers! See the above video. Campers are free to participate in our daily maker projects or may invent their own projects as well. Our campers appreciate TWA's open space, raw materials, real tools, and the support of adult mentors. TWA Kids carve wooden projects and build tree houses with hammers-n-nails in our wild forest AdventureLand on a 30-acre horse ranch! This gives children the space for traditional social development with safe Mentor guidance. We believe that whole-child development requires playing the "non-virtual reality games" of an authentic human childhood. Our staff guide your child in real-world body/brain/character development.

TWA school and camp founders Ben & Claire Walker have had a lifetime of careers in environmental and experiential education. And our Tribal Wisdom Academy team of Mentors are role-models of pioneer skills, safe practices, good character, mindfulness, and deep nature connection. We ensure that your child is getting a true mentorship and an authentic childhood experience, as expressed in our photos and camp videos from the past 4 summers in the wild woods of Los Gatos Farms.
