What our organization offers: 
Ages for which our activities are most appropriate: 
Blue River Forest Experience (BRFE) endeavors to cultivate and help sustain people with deeper awareness, appreciation, and devotion to nature, themselves, and others. Our summer camps are week long day camps designed for children ages 6-12 years. These experiences provide them with fun and exciting opportunities to build a relationship with nature, something that is vital to our overall well being! Through a variety of games and activities that take place outside throughout the day, students develop an understanding of the flora and fauna and the wildlife in the area. They will also start to develop a relationship with wilderness survival & earth-based living skills. These include: Bow-Drill (Fire by Friction), Debris Huts (Primitive shelters), Cordage, Tracking skills, Pottery, Awareness skills, and much more!

Blue River Forest Experience (BRFE) hopes to empower people and community to better themselves through a variety of nature-based programs and self-enriching experiences. Our programs, which are held on land that feeds the headwaters of the Blue River in Overland Park, Kansas, lead to a reawakened sense of wonder. We desire to inspire optimism and happiness and foster feelings of well-being. In order to do this we find it important to connect every man, woman and child back to the land, in turn this reconnects them to their true-self
