This 90 minute immersion program aims to increase child-led, exploratory time in nature, building upon their relationship with the natural world. What unfolds each week is largely determined by the girls' interests, ideas and curiosities, as well as weather. Each week, you will receive an email with the upcoming location, trail plan, and the suggested clothing. Activities may include: team cairn building, creating nature art, climbing downed trees, boulder scrambling, exploring vernal pools, vine swinging, scavenger hunts, camp cooking, nature bouquets, forest games, forest photography... the options are endless and I aim to let the group brainstorm ideas for upcoming weeks. Girl's groups always take time to reflect on self compassion, positive mindsets and confidence building. Being in the woods changes the chemical make-up in our minds, naturally giving us a boost in all of these areas! This is one BIG reason why unstructured outdoor playtime is so important for teens! *Classes are active but not strenuous. Expect to cover 1-1.5 miles each outing. *Please read the policy page that outlines behavior expectations before registering.
