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 will choose at least one topic that inspires them to study, practice, experiment with and dive deeper into with the guidance of our instructors, the community and nature itself. 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 Our homeschool courses encourage creativity and confidence in kids by facilitating the time and space for them to be just that, kids. They will learn to track animals, build fire with sticks, make arrowheads and much more. We encourage growth through introspection and sensory awareness. Learning to connect with your landscape and not only feel a part of it but one with it is a skill that students learn to master in our courses.
