Fox Trail Adventure, July 16-22, 2017


Offered to all ages 7-70+

Pre-requisite: None (first time students under 10 should be accompanied by an adult)

This is a where the trail begins. Students will be introduced to the natural world in a new and exciting way and given a chance to experience their own relationship with the Forest and those animals who live there. The building blocks of this new relationship are rooted in the ancient Tracking & Primitive Living Skills that were lived by all people throughout the world. During this week-long course, we teach the following skills:

  • debris hut shelter - a stick and leaf shelter built from surrounding materials
  • bow drill fire - a method of fire-making without matches
  • tracking skills and principles
  • techniques of finding and gathering safe drinking water in the woods
  • stalking and movement - the art of moving silently and unseen in the forest
  • an introduction to the vast methods of tracking and sensory activities
  • nature awareness and observation
  • effective use of field guides
  • methods of naturalist journaling
  • animal study - through body movement and performance
  • the philosophy of living with the earth - taught through storytelling and caretaker principles

Above all, the most important skill is the cultivation of the imagination and the wonder of a Questioning mind.  We will teach these skills entirely through hands-on and experiential learning techniques. 

This course is also open to all ages 7 and up, teens, adults, families and also Grandparents who enjoy attending  with their grandchildren. This positive experience produces lasting results where the parent and child continue to grow together long after they have returned home. Adults and parents are in separate learning groups from the youth and teens while some evening activities and all meals are shared together.

All of our programs are also open to students with Special Needs, we encourage you to contact us directly so that we may best accommodate each individual.

Tuition: $725 for individual
$1,225 for family of 2 (example: child with parent or guardian)
$575 for each additional family member
