REGISTER FOR WILDERNESS SCOUTS

Our goal in Wilderness Scouts is to guide young people on their path to wilderness self-reliance and connection with nature. We will provide students with the knowledge and hard skills to prepare them to thrive in life through outdoor experiential learning. We use a merit and advancement structured curriculum, where successful practice and demonstration opens doors to further freedoms and specialties.

At the core of the Wilderness Scouts program, students will work with mentors to gain respect for nature by understanding the importance of water, fire, food and shelter as our most basic human needs. They will begin to learn about camp, fire, and wood crafting as well as local plant, tree and animal species. They will practice the art of camouflaging and being still in nature. True self-reliance in the wilderness is grown out of deep connection with the earth and indigenous wisdom. Learning awareness of the human bond with the land and understanding of the knowledge passed down by our ancestors will give students the perspective and connection they need to learn these skills.
