Visiting Children

Visiting Children


Visiting children of all ages and their families are welcomed every year in PachaMama. The Village is fitted to accommodate a family’s needs and resident children are always happy to make new friends. Children are an integral part of PachaMama Community and have been so almost from its inception. The population of children is ever-growing and currently stands at 25. The communal environment is naturally supportive of their growth, learning and experience of life.

The jungle school is divided to two main groups: the kindergarten, 2-6 years old, and the school, 7-11 years old.

PachaMama offers children the opportunity to be immersed in nature, explore the forest and tune into its magical rhythm.

The Village has two playgrounds- one located in the village center (Downtown) and one located at the school. The school yard and playground may be used freely outside of school hours, which are 8 am to 1 pm.

Visiting kids are welcome to join the Forest Kids Camp program on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
