Eagles learn skills such as aideless navigation, atl atl, bird language, bow drill, burned wood bowls, campfire cooking, cordage, digging stick, edible and medicinal plants, campfire maintenance, hide work, land stewardship, animal tracking, pottery, shelter building, wood carving, and others.
Our classroom is the forest, fields, ponds and streams - all sessions take place out of doors. Our instructors are versed in a variety of ancient and modern camp skills and experienced working with a broad age group. Class is structured to meet the interests of different ages and personalities.
This class is for young people ages 10-15. We meet on Wednesdays from 9:30 am - 1:30 pm at Nature and Nurture Farm in Dexter, MI, and sometimes at Sunward Cohousing Community. Students bring their own snack and lunch. Special snacks, such as acorn pancakes, burdock rice, or maple syrup will be provided at some classes.
The Fall Session runs from September 19 through October 24, and includes a campout October 24-25 (no class on October 10). The cost of this series is $190, and $180 for each additional sibling.
