Pause at Perry Pines May 17th-19th, 2024
Need to hit Pause on the crazy and wild ride we’ve been on lately? Come meet a group of women in the woods for three days and two nights of fun and relaxation. We will be camping on 100 acres of private woods in Creedmoor, NC. Just a few miles north of Falls Lake. Close enough to be a quick escape, but far enough away to feel like an actual break!

Enjoy a range of activities including: kayaking, yoga, paddleboarding, hiking, foraging, disc golf, late night fireside chats, and catered meals!
Can't come this time? Please fill out the form below to be notified when dates are announced and when registration opens for future women's camping retreats.
Children's Programs
Longleaf Learning Collective is excited to be bringing our weekly programs to families in the Triangle!

Our Seeds classes are designed for babies 0-24 months, and their caregivers. This is a wonderful way to get outside with your little ones and enjoy nature. This class focuses on developmentally appropriate nature themed activities and building community and connection with other caregivers. 

Our Sprouts classes utilize curriculum developed for children 24 months- 6 years old. Classes incorporate the same rhythm every week with a different nature-based topic! Caregiver involvement, fine motor skills, imagination, emotional regulation, plus knowledge and understanding about the natural world come together beautifully in this course. 
Please fill out the form below to provide feedback for programs you are interested in and to be the first to know when our next session has openings!
