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.
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 and Water Ecology
- Artisans Guild
- Theater & Storytelling, Fine Craft Work and Leadership
Monday Forest 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.
