Class Description

 

The Wildings program is 100% outside and designed to meet the unique needs of homeschooled middle school participants. In this transitional time between childhood and young adulthood, regular nature immersion brings peace and grounding. By learning about the natural world, working with peers and mentors through challenges, and building new skills, participants gain confidence and a sense of their place in the world. 

This program is place-based and inquiry-driven. Projects and curriculum emerge from the interests, discoveries, and conversations between students and teachers.  Teambuilding activities forge connections and expand awareness of self and community. If you would like, you can schedule a site visit to meet our directors and learn more about us.

 

The program offers:

  • Time to be present, explore and connect with nature and peers

  • Foraging and wildcrafting

  • Bushcraft and tool use

  • Mindfulness and grounding exercises 

  • Nature Journaling

  • Environmental monitoring and other in-depth projects or research

  • Learning to use and create maps and field guides

  • Making and cooking with fires

  • For our 2022/2023 9-month program, the option to participate in an end-of-year backpacking trip (additional cost)

Prerequisites:  Participants should be comfortable spending time outdoors in all weather conditions and be able to hike short distances (up to about 1 mile) on uneven terrain. They must be willing to wear appropriate clothing/gear, including warm layers, waterproof pants and jacket, socks, and rain boots. Participants must be able to stay with the group, follow basic safety rules and instructions, and communicate needs or issues to an adult.
