Outdoor School (Ages 10 to 13)

Raccoons

We know Raccoons 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, Raccoons build self-confidence, empathy and leadership.

In light of Covid-19, we’re taking additional measures to ensure the health and safety of participants and staff. Please review the important information in the Outdoor School Caregiver Handbook before registering.
