School Enrichment

 

On-Site Education

We recognize the intrinsic value of encouraging children to experience the natural world within their comfort level. Our nature guides visit local schools, leading students on local field experiences, practicing hands-on wilderness skills and understanding the social bonds that we share.

With small school green spaces and gardens, we understand the need to support children’s natural curiosity and developmental need to move.  Our daily focus includes: sensory exploration, acute observation, deliberate skill practice and nature-based play. We aim to provide holistic, and enriching experiences that promote the development of wilderness skills, sustainable attitudes and appreciation of the natural world.
