Wilderness Skills * Mindfulness * Project-Based Learning


Nature Immersion Program for Homeschoolers Age 10-13*

At Aspen, tweens and teens deepen their knowledge of themselves, each other and the natural landscapes they are immersed in. Participants are encouraged to dig into a variety of projects that engage their interests and build new skills. Opportunities will abound to practice and perfect wilderness skills like fire and shelter building, whittling, tool use, plant and animal identification, foraging and more. Our guides will facilitate activities that encourage mindfulness, self-awareness and cooperation while encouraging a deep reverence for the natural world. The program will be outdoors, rain/snow or shine (unless weather is extreme). Aspen has a 10:1 Child to Staff ratio.

*We recognize that children don’t all develop at the same rate. For children who are on the line between age groups, our staff will work with parents to make an assessment as to which group seems most appropriate based on personality, ability and group dynamics.

"Children are born with a sense of wonder and an affinity for nature. Properly cultivated, these values can mature into ecological literacy, and eventually into sustainable patterns of living."
