Dear Turn Back Time friends and family, Did you know that play is a human right and that outdoor play is a perfect fit for early childhood development? Did you know that the average child spends up to 7 hours a day in front of a TV or computer screen? The decline in outdoor play has catastrophic results but Turn Back Time has some answers. We are bringing back the lost art of outdoor play and we need your help!
At Turn Back Time our mission is to increase the quality of life for children of all capabilities through nature exploration, farm education and play. The natural setting of a farm is a great equalizer because children in nature are not constrained by any diagnosis, disorder, shape, size or age. In our 2016 summer camp we served over 150 children (30% of them from our "at risk" category). We want to be able to provide nature play and education to larger numbers ALL YEAR LONG! We also want to continue our job skills training programs to young adults with disabilities on a year round basis as well.
