Carol Norton

Founder
Carol has spent the last 20 years inspiring learning through play. Her mission over the past two decades has been to create inclusive and accessible environments where all children feel comfortable, confident and challenged. She believes in adventurous learning where the day’s activities are hands-on, child-led and full of exploration and discovery.

As an outdoor lover and nature enthusiast, she has always been committed to bringing learning outdoors. With the opening of Earthbound Kids in 2008, Carol took her commitment to children and the environment to the Earthbound Kids farm – a natural setting for a truly unique camp, school or family experience. In the All About Kids tradition, children learn as they have fun. She credits her success to the amazing men and women who are part of All About Kids team and who share that same positive, playful disposition and passion for creating places where everyone belongs.
