Connect your child with the outdoors in this brand new program that centers around skill-building and social development!
This winter we're launching a special program for homeschoolers and their families to connect with the land through education, ancestral skills, and fun imaginative play! The program is designed for school aged kids age 5-12, and we invite parents to attend the session as well. This is not a parent-child program, and as such the lessons will be focused on the children, but caregivers are welcome to be on site and present for the lessons as they wish.
Our winter sessions explore shelters and fire building, tracking animals, learning how to identify and utilize local plants, and creating beautiful ancestral crafts with safe tool use. The goal is to help you to build new skills and lifelong passions in your young one, and the boundaries of the program extend to our whole suite of opportunities.

Registration is non-refundable.
Packing List Before the start of the program, we send an email to all participants with the packing list and arrival instructions.
How we enjoy the cold The packing list will include what is the best material and clothing to have your child wear at camp to avoid feeling uncomfortable and cold. As long as these lists are followed, there won't be a problem with temperature regulation. We also often have campfires as part of our programming, especially in the winter season. Another tool our teachers use to keep kids warm is to do running around outdoor games when they notice the kids may start to get cold. This really pumps up the blood and helps keep kids warm!
Weather Safety Class will occur in sunny or rainy weather. Class is cancelled only due to dangerous weather (temps below 20 F, lightning, high winds) or any COVID or health concerns. We offer a 50% credit for the cancelled day that can be used for any future registration with us.
