Bushcraft, Guide Training And Wilderness Living Skills For All Ages And Skill Levels
At School Of The Forest, we aim to offer an environment in which young people and adults can learn outdoor skills that they can use for a lifetime. Not only the basics of outdoor living but practical skills that can be applied to everyday life. Hands-on, outdoor-oriented education is a vital part of life that in recent years has been moved to the realm of “recreation”. In our programs, we hope to offer our students a chance to learn hands-on activities and skills that are not only enjoyable but also create a greater understanding of themselves and the world they live in. Conveniently located in southern Vermont, but with trips all over the Northeast, we offer students the chance to learn the skills they need close to home, and then put themselves to the test in remote wilderness settings.
