Target demographics: Programs are offered for children and teens age 4 to 17 and their families and for groups such as schools, homeschool associations, boy and girl scouts and others who desire to reconnect children with nature.

Programs: In this program, youth and teens age 4-17, and their parents or guardians attend a week learning survival, tracking and nature awareness. They learn the ancient skills of making fire without matches, how to make shelters from the landscape, collecting edible and medicinal plants and much more. All teachings help participants change their relationship with the natural world, learning respect and appreciation for what we take from the land to sustain ourselves. So many leave transformed by this new relationship with the Earth.

Ensuring the survival of future generations by guiding youth and community to a pure connection with the Earth.
