For Ages 5-17
School Dismissal until 5:30pm
Through the Trees will provide van pickup at Kate Furbish and Harriet Beecher Stowe schools in Brunswick.
In our Nature Immersion After School Program, the students will be immersed in nature and have the opportunity to engage with nature’s playground, discovering and strengthening a deeper connection to themselves, nature and their peer community. On 58 acres of forest, field, pond and the magical Frost Gully Brook, kids and teens can experience the healing effects of the natural world.
Through self-directed learning and play, children and teens will be able to unwind and build confidence, resilience, stronger awareness of self and an appreciation of the natural world. Our staff includes Registered Maine Guides, Guides-in-Training, and Teen Mentors, all of whom are passionate about sharing their love of the outdoors and creating a meaningful community for children and teens.
Participants will have the opportunity to acquire & hone their understanding of wilderness skills, including fire building, shelter construction, basic whittling and sawing. There will also be art and craft activities, games and various mindfulness practices.
Throughout the program, we will be reinforcing the Through The Trees Root Values:
Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Kind, Be Responsible, Be Mindful, Be Your Best Self and HAVE FUN!
