Weekly Homeschool Tribe
Every week during the school year, kids and teens will get to experience and learn from the outdoors! We will emerge ourselves in primitive, survival, and awareness skills. In addition, there are numerous natural sciences we’ll study, which will include botany, ecology, conservation, hydrology, entomology, ornithology, land stewardship, and more! We will be inspired by the seasons, play games, know how to be a land steward, think like scientists, and become more comfortable outside by learning outdoor survival skills.
Teens (ages 11-14) meet on Thursdays and youth (ages 5-10) meet on Fridays.
Tuition is per semester. Courses are rain or shine. The specific dates of when we meet and costs are provided under the exact course's Event page, under "Enroll & RSVP".
Monthly Nature Quest Clan
On Saturdays once a month, youth in ages 5-12, will be able to go with the flow of nature and spend the day exploring what the outdoors has to offer. We will discuss our passions and discover how nature can fuel them. This program is great for everyone, from children who are just beginning to get acquainted with the outdoors to independent wilderness pros. From archery and fire building to studying details of our environment, kids will connect to nature and make wonderful life-long memories.

Bring your favorite summer snack and drink, sit back and enjoy having exclusive access to the pool!
