Thank you to our generous community for a successful 15th annual Natural Night Out fundraising event! We look forward to seeing you in the fall of 2022 – stay tuned for details!

Natural Night In invites the community to support and learn more about Thorne and the joyful, hands-on, place-based environmental educational experiences our programs offer. Natural Night In raises funds in support of our Nature For All Initiative, allowing Thorne to help make sure that all youth, regardless of race, ethnicity or family income have the opportunity to connect with nature!

“Thorne has been an amazing experience for our kids.  The quality of care and quantity of fun has not been diminished because of COVID.  The kids come home happy, tired and played out and looking forward to the next day.  We’re looking forward to next summer already!”
– Carolyn Schilling, 2020 Summer Camp Mom
