Spring 2017

March 10—June 16 (14 Friday sessions with Earth Path Nature Camp)

15 children, ages 6-11 yrs.

Earlier in the session, we took advantage of the snow and did quite a bit of sledding and animal tracking through the forest. We have also focused on shelter building, fire making (including starting fires with a bow drill), conifer studies, stories, songs, games and crafting (most recently, we constructed wood and birchbark boats which we sailed down the streams, and we have begun some projects making arrows and cordage). As the season progresses, we will introduce  spring plant studies, harvest medicinal plants and make salves, and undertake local bird and frog studies, where we learn to identify them by their calls.
