  • 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 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! Hats off to you and your team for capturing this beautiful day with such an adventurous and warm spirit” – Lisa, Monthly Program Parent

“Just wanted you to know that my son has asked daily when he is going back to forest school. He LOVED it! Thanks again to you and your staff for providing such a wonderful day” – Julie, Monthly Program Parent
