Custom Bushcraft Programs For Schools, Science Centers, Museums, etc.

Custom Courses For Schools And Other Groups

Bring the outdoors into your classroom with one of our unique courses on outdoor, environmental or survival education. Since 1999 we’ve been teaching about the outdoors and guiding full time. We’ll custom-design a program to meet your needs, whether you’re looking for a 1 period outdoor education presentation, an overnight camping trip or a week-long canoe trip on Maine’s Allagash river.

Types of Programs We Offer:

  • Classroom Sessions – Slide shows, Powerpoint presentations, direct instruction, demonstrations
  • Day Outings – Near your school, at our base, or another location
  • Overnight Trips
  • Extended Wilderness Journeys

It’s not always possible to make it to the wilderness. Let us Bring it to you.

We’ve run courses for school, museums and science centers. We build the course around your desired outcomes and teach outdoor living skills and survival to your students in any setting. Courses cover everything from the basics of shelter building, fire by friction, and hands-on ecology. Students in these programs walk away with the basic knowledge and skill set needed to spend a lifetime enjoying the outdoors.

What previous students and administrators have to say about our custom courses

“Christopher is a great outdoor leader and an inspiration to young people of all ages; the School of the Forest is second to none. The school and Chris are highly skilled professionals who clearly love what they do. 

Christopher designed and ran programs for 11-14 year olds at The Libby Museum of Natural History for two summers. The kids were outside learning enthusiastically for five hours a day. By week’s end, they could build shelters and fires safely, carve branches into tools, and identify wild plants. There were no groans of boredom, no accidents, just happy proud kids able to show-off their new skills to their friends and families.”

~Alana Albee; Director Of The Libby Museum in Wolfeboro NH.
