We custom tailor each day to meet the needs of the individuals in our classes, while always taking advantage of what the natural world is offering in the present moment. Each session is seasonally oriented and has a unique focus. Classes are outside unless weather conditions are too extreme.  We maintain a student to teacher ratio of 6 to 1 allowing us to connect one-on-one with every student every day.

New Location For Winter Session: 

We are looking forward to exploring and playing at a new program site at the GT Optimist Club, just South of Traverse City (near Chums Corners).  You can learn about the organization, property, location and amenities HERE.  This site includes 40 acres tucked away in a hidden valley with a convergence of ecosystems and serving as a wildlife corridor for the area.  A large fire pit, along with a picnic shelter area will serve our needs well as we track animals, play games, slide down hills, learn survival skills and explore this beautiful site.
