Learning should be dynamic and experiential…

…and our best teacher continues to be nature’s beauty, mystery, complex systems, cycles and diversity.

Programs will include exploration and free play with space for  skills including but not limited to: Bow making, whittling, fire kits, plant uses, foraging, flutes and music, tracking, bird language, animal movements, orienting and shelter building. Time is spent exploring nature to build connections through sensory awareness games, stories, songs and discovering the natural wonders of the moment.
