Homeschool Classes

Ages 6 – 12

Our Homeschool Clubs are for families who want their children to understand and feel deeply connected to the natural world. Classes are conducted 100% outdoors and with access to trails, rivers, caves, and a well-ventilated tipi!

Children Will:

  • Develop a deeper connection with nature
  • Gain knowledge about local plants, animals, and ecosystems in Central Oregon
  • Learn interpersonal skills and make friends
  • Become better at maintaining focus
  • Learn how to thrive in challenging situations
  • Exercise their growing minds so that they can develop in a positive and healthy setting

Your programs have changed my son’s life in very powerful ways. He learned to embrace his uniqueness! I saw him grow into a more confident young man that is more in touch with himself on a spiritual level and with nature. He learned to be quiet within himself and for him that has been profound!

Thank you for all you offer!

Program Description

Our Homeschool Programs consist of outings that provide adventure and rich learning opportunities for children ages 6 – 12. The program is open to all families, even if you do not Homeschool. Spending time outdoors learning, playing, and exploring has countless benefits for children’s emotions, physical health, social development, and happiness. In the Tracker’s Club program, we allow participants to experience and study the land they call home. Each class has a unique and fun theme such as “Primitive Skills” and “Local Animals.” Although we follow a curriculum, we also welcome spontaneous exploration, investigation, and intuitive changes of focus. Our learning philosophies and many of our activities are inspired by Coyote’s Guide to Connecting with Nature by Jon Young, Ellen Haas, and Evan McGown. Much of our curriculum has been developed by us as well. We facilitate a variety of activities such as nature arts and crafts, attuning to the wild, tracking, primitive skills, survival skills, nature songs, and much more! Along with the in person classes, we also give parents tools for continuing the learning at home through follow-up exercises and resources. You are welcome to sign up for as many of these sessions as you want.
