Course Details

This is a parent involvement class. See our FAQs for more details on how we organize parent volunteers. Course Objectives We expect students to demonstrate basic outdoor competence by participating in weekly games, activities, workshops and sit spots. Students will demonstrate proficiency in the big 4 (shelter water fire food) by building, carving, and practicing the techniques instructors teach and facilitate during class. Students in this class will be expected to achieve mastery in at least one topic that inspires them by choosing at least 1 keeper role, unlocking and completing all of the assignments. (see discord for details) Examples of skills taught Sit spot: meditation, journaling, ecology, taxonomy, ethnobotany, morphology, biology, mapping Survival Skills: shelter, water, fire, food, wood working, leather working, hide tanning, bowery, bone and stone tools, fiber weaving, and much more Wandering: nature based games, aided & aidless navigation, getting lost/found, tracking & awareness, bird language, edible & medicinal plants, natural movements About the Course Within the last few years we have gotten some interest regarding teen programs. Unfortunately we do not have enough interest in any one location to run a teen course. But we do have enough interest throughout Making Tracks. Currently the center most location is the Alpine Location. Every other week teens will meet there with Dakota to work on skills at a higher more in depth level. If a more immersive location is required we may move closer into the mountains. The added curriculum to this course will involve keeper roles which will be handed out on the first day of class. Students will be challenged to complete a series of difficult tasks pertaining to a skill of their choice. (i.e. medicine keeper-make a tincture at home and bring it to class) The progress of these roles will be reviewed by Dakota and Erik and achievements will be announced in our monthly newsletter. Age Range: 7-18 (littles welcome to stay during parent volunteer days) Please note our scheduled Vacation Days: Autumn Break: October 27th-November 1st Thanksgiving Break: November 27th-29th Winter Break: December 15th-31st Spring Break: March 31st-April 4th Your instructor will be out of town on the following dates; if our other instructors can not substitute we will reschedule for the end of the course in may: September 15th-21st February 16th-22nd Highland Glen Park, Knight Avenue, Highland, UT, USA
