Family, Youth and Teen Way of the Woods- Homeschool

Program Description:

This course helps you delve deeper into the survival skills and craft work that were introduced in the Family, Youth and Teen Experience. We will teach advanced shelter, flint knapping, quickie bow making, bark baskets, advanced fire making, brain-tanning hides, advanced stalking and movement, coal burning bowls, pottery and much more. As we create from nature we build our relationship with it and really start to experience living as one with the Earth.

Ages and Prerequisites: Families with children age 7-17

This program is designed for families to attend together and is open for youth and teens age 10-17. 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.
