Teen Program

Have a craving for epic adventures?

Are you ready to slip away from the city on a regular basis to learn ancient and amazing skills with a group of like-minded people?

This is a program for teens between 13 and 17 years old to have two full days per month immersed in nature and community.

We will practice survival skills, learn naturalist knowledge, challenge our skills and awareness, and build leadership.

The goals of this program are to develop participants’ wilderness living skills and ecological literacy, develop their self-awareness and self-expression, and nourish their genius and personal gifts. This is a community space for every participant to feel safe and connected, a peer group of like-minded people led by passionate and skilled mentors.

The program will end in late May with a weekend camp-out, where we can explore some vast wilderness and practice the skills we learned together.


Projects and activities will depend on the passions and curiosities of the participants, but may include:

  • Skills of shelter, fire, water, and food
  • Song-writing
  • Archery
  • Building bows and arrows
  • Wild edible and medicinal plants
  • Animal tracking
  • Camouflage and invisibility skills
  • Learning the language of the birds
  • Leather shoe-making

The part that really spoke to me about the Teen program was the unquestionable sense of fun, and momentum the program had kept going throught the whole thing.
