Youth Programs

Our youth programs offer hands-on, heart-engaged, nature connection for ages 8 through 18


Nature Skills

Follow animal trails, meet the trees, and tell stories around the campfire.  Our protected forest is a natural playground with a creek running through it.  Time in a wild settings balances the nervous system, especially when we emphasize connecting with nature and community in a fun, safe and healthy way.


Farm Skills

Kids love hands-on skills!  We draw on their passions for planting seeds, building, tinkering, caring for creatures, and playing games. We all learn confidence, respect, and responsibility through Farm work. Making beautiful things helps develop individual  creativity and motor skills.

Archery is an ancient skill still significant for our modern context.  Focus, honor, and dedication develop as we hone the ability to reach what we aim for. We have epic fun playing shooting games.  Padded arrows are an incredible way to learn instinctive archery and quicken our reflexes.
