The Bothin Campus is an abundant natural wonderland where children and their educators gather under the trees, in yurts, a barn, and historic buildings and cottages. Seasonal creeks and waterfalls provide a rich world of possibilities for play that inspires, informs and nourishes.

The Heartwood Educational Collaborative Fund’s goal is to continue to offer this space to children as the foundation for their learning and development as a long-term Waldorf public program. The Bothin Campus is currently home to five homeschooling communities, a rich after-care program, a nature-based preschool and an outdoor educational program.
