Scapa Fest: A Family Festival

Igniting that spark...

“What do parents owe their young that is more important than a warm and trusting connection to the Earth…?”  – Theodore Roszak, The Voice of the Earth

Scapa Fest is a Family Festival. It is a place for families to share discoveries and practices through trans-generational activities: learning from doing together.

Scapa Fest has a dedicated children and families programme, all available on our interactive schedule page.

“If we want children to flourish, to become truly empowered, then let us allow them to love the earth before we ask them to save it. Perhaps this is what Thoreau had in mind when he said, “the more slowly trees grow at first, the sounder they are at the core, and I think the same is true of human beings.”-David Sobel, Beyond Ecophobia

"Teaching children about the natural world should be seen as one of the most important events in their lives." - Thomas Berry, The Dream of the Earth
