Wilderness survival and lore

Throughout literature many great stories of wilderness survival and adventure have inspired children to connect and care for nature. The greatest wish of many a kid is to wander to through the woods and know how to live and care for all their own needs and the land around them.

This camp begins with that story. This week we train the ultimate skills of bushcraft and wilderness survival while reading the tales of My Side of the Mountain, Hatchet and other epics of wilderness living.

We have fun developing a working knowledge of various bushcraft including lighting fires with no matches, proper carving skills, making traps, primitive cooking, learning to safely harvest wild edible plants, animal tracking, and much more.

All this, plus learn the voices of the birds and animals; what their calls and behaviors tell us of other creatures in the woods, resources for survival and sustainability and the coming storms and winds we need live by.

Week of August 26-30, 2013 Drop-off and pick-up will be at The Berkeley School.

Our Philosophy for Learning & Living

A Smile

We help children to feel like that group of kids wandering country backyards 50 years ago: independent, tired, muddy, wet and happy from the woods and wild. We are acutely aware of full and real hazards of the out of doors after years of working in environmental education. We try to move away from the highly structured and limiting tolerances of conventional environmental education while keeping kids truly safe but not encapsulated from, or phobic of nature. We are deep patriots to the value of offering guided yet very free and transparent experiences for kids. We believe it is okay to be thirsty at times, cold at times, and wet at times. It builds empathy and care for the gifts of life. It fosters adventure and sincere accomplishment. We also believe it is critical to feel supported and cared for as they truly explore their passion and responsibility. And through a healthy life immersed in nature, they test the limits and great potential of the often untapped physical and emotional resiliency they possess
