Monthly Nature School provides a forest day almost every month during the school year for a total of 7 sessions to reorient youth to nature and support connection with a sense of place. Each session carries a theme based on the 8 Shields Model that provides inspiration and direction to work on new skills, projects, and challenges. 

Program Highlights 

  • Curiosity-led exploration outdoors with learning opportunities introduced naturally
  • Nature-based games, stories, projects, and challenges to inspire connection to place related to the curriculum theme
  • Flexibility to account for the energy of the group and the season
  • Mentoring delivered by experienced instructors to support students developing problem-solving skills, self-sufficiency, and a deeper level of learning
  • High adult to student ratio (1:7) and primarily small group adventures
  • Emphasis on emotional awareness, compassion, and gratitude
  • Advanced techniques and skills (including knife skills) developed through multiple approaches to key concepts
  • On-site director and volunteers who offer additional support and mentorship

“[My kids] both said they had THE BEST time ever today! It’s certainly a different world up there [on a snow day] than it was in the city today. The kids didn’t want to leave!
