This weeklong course is offered in partnership with Squam Lake Science Center in New Hampshire. The course takes place at the science center and allows students to not only learn outdoor living and survival skills, but to interact in a hands-on way with the animals they’ll see when they’re out in the woods.
In this course, students will learn about camp life and the basics of canoeing at our field school, before setting off on a trip down the river. All of our courses touch on the “Self” aspect of our educational philosophy, but this one, in particular, will focus on it in depth. Students will be required to keep phones in airplane mode while at the field school, and once we’re on the river we’ll be beyond the reach of cell signals.
