About the Creator of Amaze'ing Acres:
Eleanor Liebson, OTR/L, PYT is an occupational therapist and professional yoga therapist. Her experience includes 27 years in physical and psychosocial rehabilitation, specialty group yoga, private yoga therapy, stress management workshops and consultation to yoga teachers. She is a member of the American Occupational Therapy Association, Professional Yoga Therapy Institute and the International Association of Yoga Therapists.
She began Amaze’ing Acres Adventure Play Land in 1996 as a result of her 6 year old son’s aversion to writing letters and numbers but willingness to pick up a pencil to do mazes. He also didn’t like to get his hands dirty so it seemed natural for this occupational therapist and mother to plan a family project planting a hedge maze. It took two weeks of full time planting to plant 500 arborvitae shrubs. The little boy who didn’t like to get his hands dirty got over his aversion. For many children with sensory “issues”, as well as, grown-ups deprived of outdoor time, nature offers healing solutions.
Amaze’ing Acres Adventure Play Land and Wilderness Camping is an ever evolving endeavor. I envision a pedal cart track, pavilion, children’s village, treehouses, ropes courses, etc… Skies the limit! Come grow your mind, muscles and imagination.
