We offer programming for two age groups:
Fiery Foxes (Ages 7-9)
We know Fiery Foxes are growing quickly and itching to do things for themselves. That’s why we make each week an exciting new outdoor adventure! We set off on long wanders through the forest, carve tools and craft baskets, play games that test our teamwork, and more. By creating with their hands and working as a group, Fiery Foxes learn what they’re capable of.
Ravens (Ages 10-13)
We know Ravens are craving independence and starting to develop their own world view. That’s why we create a safe space in nature for them to push themselves physically and mentally. We explore the farthest reaches of the forest, think about our impact on our environment, and follow our passions to create bigger and better projects. By creating with their hands and taking time to reflect, Ravens build self-confidence, empathy and leadership.
Content for both groups may include the following skills and knowledge, in age-appropriate ways:
- About a wide array of plants and animals that share our environment
- How different plants can be used
- How to identify and manage risk
- Survival skills like fire-building, carving, and long term shelter-building
- Teamwork, leadership, overcoming challenges and problem-solving
- Stewardship education
