Our weekly Teen program is intended to provide a space for young people to deepen their nature connection through weekly gatherings in a small group of peers. This program will offer our core nature connection routines with an added focus on naturalist knowledge, earth-based skills and natural materials.
Our intention is to provide sound mentorship for teens, acknowledging their learning and growth through the dynamic time of adolescence. Working with the land, the seasons, and old stories, we aim to support a path of curiosity, and a feeling of belonging in this place and this time.
A weekly class allows us to take on some bigger crafting projects and go deeper into our hard skills. Depending on what the group decides, over the year we hope to get into some of the following projects:
Bow and arrow building
Flint-knapping (stone tools)
Sewing and leatherwork
Tracking and stalking
Mapping and navigation
We hope you will join us for this rich and adventurous program.
