With the continuous improvement of people's living standards, children's natural education has gradually entered the public's field of vision and has begun to receive widespread attention. Taking Shijing Village of Mountain in Fujian Province as an example, this paper profoundly discusses the design strategy of rural children's nature education camp based on Rousseau's concept of natural education to find an effective way to reconnect families, children, and nature, to promote the healthy development of children's physical and mental health, and to help the countryside. Revitalize to explore new approaches and strategies.
