California Teacher Training

Program Description:

We have designed a weekend course to train people how to teach wilderness skills to children. We will go over the four elements of survival, the arts of tracking and awareness and how to get kids motivated and excited about learning these skills. We will have discussion around many Coyote Teaching points as passed down from Grandfather Stalking Wolf to Tom Brown Jr. We will also cover ways to set up programs with us or on your own in your local area and ideas for an integrated curriculum for working in schools.

Ages and Prerequisites: Adults 18 and up

This program is designed for adults who work with children or want the skills for their teaching their own children. Please note the program utilizes primitive skills such as the bow drill. The course is not designed to teach the participants bow drill, but how to teach it. The expectation is that adults have some experience through Children of the Earth Foundation, Tracker School or experience from another source prior to attending.
