Now accepting students ages 5 and 6 for SPRING term.
This program is specifically for home schoolers who want to build their relationship with the outdoors. We focus on nature connection through traditional living skills such as friction fire, shelter building, tracking, storytelling and so much more. Our program evolves through the interest of the students -- we provide an evolving structure for the kids to discover nature and their role in it, with a heavy emphasis on fun, creativity and open exploration. Our goal is for the students to gain a relationship with the skills while feeling comfortable in their natural world. To gain a confidence in the ever changing environment of nature; while feeling safe with an understanding of not only how to remian alive in the wilderness but how to live in harmony with the Earth and each other.
We will meet once a week throughout most of the school year -- ***WINTER TERM WILL BE AT OUR NATURE CENTER EVERY WEEK*** -- Autumn & Spring will alternate every other week between the Coyote Trails Nature Center (CTNC) & our Wilderness Campus outside of Ashland, starting at CTNC for the first class of each term.
