Earthwork Wilderness Survival Training School
Wilderness Education, Emergency Survival, Self Sufficiency, Nature Connection
Immersed in Nature children thrive! For more than a decade, Earthwork Programs has been developing relationships with children and families throughout the Pioneer Valley. Our incredibly unique approach to education and mentoring along with our dynamic social curriculum develops inner worth and self confidence.
Earthwork Programs offers workshops to adults, teens, children and families, schools, scouts and other community groups. We have been teaching these skills for more than 10 years. Get hands-on experience with tracking, awareness and survival.
Learn how to make a fire without matches and warm natural shelters. Discover the ways of tracking wildlife and create native crafts that enhance our connection to our hearts and our hands. We will have time to play, explore, learn and gain new skills. Live with nature in a way that works to benefit both us and our environment.
Our mentoring approach creates unique Programs by asking the kids, “what are your PASSIONS?” Then we build on that; we co-create a powerful week for all. Participants continue coming back year after year, and even for the whole summer!
Let your shopping support your life and change the world – one person in nature at a time! We offer Earthwork Bucks and survival products that will come in handy when you're out in the wild! Check out links to other online resources for the best in mentoring, tracking, survival, edible & medicinal plants and birds.
Challenging and dynamic programs designed to teach cooperative problem solving in a wilderness situation. Participants build inter-personal trust, develop strategies for success, develop core strengths, manage resources and promote a team approach.
