The Trackers Homeschool Outdoor Program is comprised of outdoor skills and artisan crafts for homeschooled and independent study students. You drop off your child and we guide them into a fantastic world of adventure and ancient skills.
Now Enrolling for 2017-18!
Outdoor Learning Year-Round
Our courses are specifically designed to meet the unique needs of homeschool families. Trackers programs are conducted almost entirely outdoors, fostering active engagement with the lessons and the land. For some specific projects in Berkeley we may also utilize our historic Trackers Guild Hall for fine craftwork projects and more.
All students learn skills from all four Trackers guilds:
- Rangers Guild
- Outdoor Survival, Animal Tracking and The Curriculum of Shadows
- Wilders Guild
- Wild Plants, Homesteading and The Way of the Wilder: Regenerative Ecological Relationships
- Mariners Guild
- Fishing, Aquatic Plants and Water Ecology
- Artisans Guild
- Theater & Storytelling, Fine Craft Work and Leadership
Monday Rovers Forest School Kindergarten and Preschool
We believe that our youngest students are capable of significantly more than they are often given credit for. For our 4 and 5-year-olds we have crafted a careful curriculum that balances outdoor exploration and natural skills. Learn more on our Forest Kindergarten and Preschool page.
New: Multi-Day Micro-School
For students in Berkeley wanting to extend their learning, we are excited to offer our micro-school option. All students who sign up for all three days will be grouped together with the same instructor, allowing for more in-depth mentoring and personalization of projects. Parents will be able to collaborate with our staff to link our learning at Trackers to their own home-based independent study. Please contact us using the information below to learn more about this micro-school. We will be able to offer a 10% discount on tuition for those enrolled for 2 or 3 program days.
