Each week weaves songs, stories, games, earth skills and arts in a community village where kids are immersed in "the elements" of nature and cultural mentorship, using traditions and approaches learned from the 8 Shields Institute, the Art of Mentoring Program, and Coyote Mentoring.
Kids enjoy our natural playground nestled among white pines, primitive shelters and forts, some designated for play while others are studios for painting, jewelry making, woodcarving, pottery making, bushcraft & wildcrafting.
Kids explore the "studios" and the forest, hills, creek and fields with skilled mentors, who offer tailored activities based on the children's passions and interests!
