Join our Rovers Forest Apprenticeship!
Trackers Earth's nature immersion program for Ages 4-Grade K.
A school-year program that teaches real outdoor skills 1 weekend a month.
Guided by our best Early Childhood Educators, children find new friends while exploring nature. They share in fun outdoor adventures. We call them Rovers because they learn skills from all Four Guilds of Trackers:
Rangers Guild Follow the trails of local forest animals. Develop skills of outdoor living and safety through fantastic games. Learn to explore the forest and read maps.
Wilders Guild Help care for animals of the ranch. Learn about wild plants and trees. Tend to the gardens that feed the Trackers Village.
Mariners Guild Play and forage by the water, finding crawdads and fish. Tie knots, make tiny boats, and navigate the lore of the ancient mariner.
Artisans Guild Get hands-on experience with woodworking and other handcraft skills. Share in awesome fun of the forest and learn to create our own.
Our Rovers Apprenticeship Mentors are experienced Early Childhood Educators teaching authentic skills. They are facilitators of growth through the power of nature and community.
