Living Forest

Program Description:

Designed for younger children and families, this adventure brings the students into the secret lives of the local wildlife! With our staff at their side, students uncover what’s alive and moving just beyond their awareness. We spend the week immersed and playing in the natural world- mimicking animals, enjoying self-directed nature study, and finding out how cool the things really are out there! This class also utilizes survival skills in a fun and functional way to develop confidence both in nature and oneself.

Ages and Prerequisites:

Families with children age 5-9

This program is designed for families to attend together. Parents must participate in the program with their children. During the program, kids are divided into age appropriate groups and the parents, while participating sometimes with their children, also have their own group to learn the skills.

Students must have completed the Family, Youth and Teen Experience course before attending.
