An outdoor immersive experience where kiddos delve into the creative expanse of the wild world. Our classroom consists of more than 100 acres of forest, meadow, shoreline, and marsh on land adjacent to Lake Champlain, in Burlington Vermont. Our curriculum is emergent, based on the passions of the staff, the evolving interest of each kid, and the seasonal events unfolding under a canopy of maples and hickories.
In this school year program, middle schoolers work together to design personal learning objectives to learn a trade (e.g. song writing, spoon carving, wild medicinal plants, storytelling, game facilitation), explore Vermont in a series of field trip adventures, and take a leadership role in facilitating transformative and engaging experiences for younger kids.
