Summer Day Camp 2023
July 10 - 14
- 400 US dollars$400
*10am - 2pm *Ages 7-15 We are so excited for a week of incredible experiences outdoors with your children! Each day promises a new adventure! We'll be meeting at several beautiful nature spots in the Pasadena/Altadena area and end our week at the beach for an exhilarating tide pool adventure. During our time together we'll observe, engage, play, and learn our way to respectful relationships with our local ecology and green spaces. This program offers children the opportunity to have fun learning the skills of our ancestors from someone who’s lived the Old Ways. It’s a beautiful way to bring balance to their technology-driven lives, understand the difference between their needs and wants, and gain the self-confidence that comes from meeting those needs directly. This is a mentoring program. We will feel the natural rhythm of the land and discover ancient wisdom as we “seek what they sought.” All classes are taught with love, compassion, non-violent communication (NVC) methods, and the inherent principles of living a life in Harmony with the Earth. Parents are welcome but not required to attend. Some of the skills we may learn during our time together: Exploring Nature immersion games Sensory awareness, expanded vision Silent walking and stalking Tracking and reading animal sign Camouflage Edible and medicinal plants Shelter design and concepts for insulation and weatherproofing Shelter location based on topography Making rope/string from plants for fishing line, nets, snares, etc. Digging sticks and rabbit sticks Primitive hygiene (making soap, toothbrush and comb) Paiute deadfall trap, quail trap and springpole snare Safety outdoors (poisonous plants, insects, reptiles, bear and mtn. lion) Useful knots Accessing intuition Navigation Traditional and modern stories
