Wilderness Survival Day Program (during April Vacation)

REGISTER FOR SPRING VACATION PROGRAM

Tuesday, April 18 – Friday, April 21, 2017

(April School Vacation, Tuesday – Friday)
9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Ages 7 and up

Register early & prepay for all 4 days & receive sliding-scale discount option @ $276-$300/child for 4 days.

If not available for the 4 days, your child can attend @ $75/day prepaid (2-day minimum)

Experience the AWAKENING of Spring!

While spending lots of time outdoors, we will

* notice new growth all around us, while learning about edible and medicinal plants,
* notice new birds…establishing territories.

There is so much happening during Spring.

By practicing nature awareness, we will learn to look deeper and through our tracking skills and the ability to be quiet in the forest, we may even see some of the young wildlife. Animals are very busy this time of year, and it is a great time to actually see wildlife.

We will also wander and learn what to do if lost, learn basic wilderness living skills (like shelter making, fire making, cordage), and develop our ability to be comfortable in the woods. Wherever you are, there is home.

Bonus: In the past, we’ve seen, as a group, baby foxes (kits)…maybe well see them again! THIS YEAR–check out the Earthwork Programs’ Community-built wigwam!

…hanging out and making new friends…while being in the woods…practicing and learning new skills…nothing quite like it!

All of this for $276-$300, sliding scale, for 4 days! If not available for the whole week, 2-day minimum at $75/day.

Call 413-340-1161 if you have questions.

Earthwork Survival Skills with Zoar

This Program is an introduction to survival fires, shelter building and discovering wild edibles.

Learn skills that have been passed down for generations: starting fires without a match, building shelters that could save your life in an emergency situation, identifying and gathering wild edibles, and recognizing medicinal plants. Learn the skills to have peace of mind in the woods as well as be prepared for comfort in the outdoors without a tent.

Classes take place on the 90 acres on and around Zoar Outdoor in the beautiful Berkshire Mountains and Deerfield River Valley. No prior experience is required.

All full-day Programs will provide a delicious picnic-style lunch with salads, homemade breads for deli-style sandwiches, cookies and, perhaps, foraged edibles prepared over an open fire. A sheath with knife will also be provided for you.

Classes will be held rain or shine; please be prepared to be outdoors in the event of rain.
