<--Back to Summer Session

 

Nature Immersion Program for Ages 11-13*

June 13 through August 18, 9:30am to 3:00pm

Aftercare option available until 5:30pm (pick up anytime during those hours).

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 fun activities that encourage mindfulness, self-awareness and teamwork while encouraging a deep reverence for the natural world. The program will be outdoors, rain or shine unless weather is extreme (such as high winds or heat index of 100 or more), which may result in cancellation.

" We can best help children learn, not by deciding what we think they should learn and thinking of ingenious ways to teach it to them, but by making the world, as far as we can, accessible to them, paying serious attention to what they do, answering their questions and helping them explore the things they are most interested in."
-John Holt

*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.
