The small class size of 12 and high adult to child ratio (1:6) enables high-quality interactions and connections with students.

  • Variety in games, stories, projects, songs, and challenges through weekly themes
  • 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 (1:6) and small class size of 12
  • Field trips to explore different ecosystems, habitats, and learning environments

What Families are Saying

“My son asks me nearly every day, “Is today forest school?”; he always comes back full of energy, bright-eyed and happy, whether it was raining or shining. I have also seen him apply some of the observation skills on our own nature walks. I would recommend Soaring Eagle to each and every parent I come in contact with! Thank you:)” – Alison, Young Sprouts Program Parent

“Everyday, our kids come home dirty, tired and happy. This morning, we stopped along the trail and my son said, ‘Mommy, this is a Vine Maple..and that’s a Red Alder’. He is 5 years old! It’s a great camp!” – Kira, Young Sprouts Summer Camp Parent

“My son absolutely loves outdoor school. He wishes he could go there every day. The staff are knowledgeable, fun, and care about creating a safe environment for kids to learn and grow.” – Jill, Monthly Program Parent
