Nimble, clever, quick, fun-loving. Foxes is a celebration of child passions: climbing, running, sneaking, listening, hiding. This program is also a step into the world of competence and self-sufficiency: building skills in fire tending, shelter building and tool use. Tracking adventures satisfy the inquisitive and creative mind at this age, providing ample opportunity for inference, storytelling, deduction, and pattern recognition. Foxes delivers invisible learning and healthy growth with the volume turned up on fun!
What you and your child can expect:
A welcoming and nurturing atmosphere in a hemlock forest. Days of exploring, practicing skills, and games that teach.
Our model seeks to support young people in becoming resilient, capable, and service-minded. Our daily endeavors promote attributes such as: Quiet Mind, Common Sense, Aliveness and Agility, Inquisitive Focus, Caring and Tending, Service to Community, Awe and Reverence, and Self-Sufficiency. We foster these attributes through a set of core routines and nature-based challenges. The learning experience is dynamic, emergent, multi-sensory, and exciting.
