Class Description

Class Desciption

The Salmonberries class is an outdoor nature immersion program for homeschooled kids ages 6-11. This class learns through hands-on experiences while hiking, playing, and exploring the forest, water, and field habitats. Program participants connect to each other and the natural world through:

  • Learning activities that are authentic, meaningful, relevant, and engaging.

  • Mindfulness practices that develop place-awareness, self-awareness, reduce stress, and build personal resilience, confidence, independence, teamwork, communication, and leadership skills.

  • Stewardship activities focused on developing a deep understanding of the impacts and outcomes of spending time in nature for the space itself and for our own selves.

  • Outdoor skill-based learning such as knife work, fire building, foraging, and animal tracking that instills in children a sense of place, independence, self-sufficiency, and ease while being outdoors and in a natural and wild environment.
