Honoring the magic of children & nature

Welcome to Bluestone Nature Programs!

Bluestone Nature Programs offers nature- and play-based learning serving children ages 18 months-5 years. We offer an immersive, hands-on program that takes place 90-100% outdoors in all kinds of weather. 

We're located in Port Jervis, NY and spend our days exploring acres of woods, wetlands, and fields. This kithship connects us to our Place, our community, and our elders.

Bluestone Nature Programs

Port Jervis, NY

Bluestone Nature Programs play and learn on the unceded land of our Host Nation peoples, the Munsee Lenape and Mohican. We offer deep condolences to the past, present, and future Indigenous peoples who experienced harm at the hands of colonizers and for the systemic racism they still experience today. We promise to do our best as allies and support our Host Nation and all Indigenous peoples with our actions. We recognize this statement is just the first step and commit ourselves to continue to grow and work towards reparations and healing.
