About a typical day
A typical day includes old-school group games, student storytelling and safety presentations, exploring and nature play, and practicing wilderness survival skills. All the activities are led by students, who draw on our online videos and tutorials. Instructors coach, guide and support students in leading and learning from their roles.
Social and Leadership Skills
Sadly, today many homeschoolers and even school children have very little unstructured time to play and interact with peers. This is an unprecedented new development in human history. The Natural Leaders program fosters an environment where students who are shy, socially awkward, or anxious can develop relationships and social confidence. We have seen dramatic transformations, just over the last year. At the same time, socially confidentstudents take their leadership skills to new levels through regular practice.
Wilderness Survival & Nature Discovery
Most children today lack the opportunity to roam outside exploring local woods and creeks. They are often fearful or uncomfortable in nature, or ignorant of the actual dangers. We seek to foster the development of a life-long love of the outdoors. Students experience nature through the seasons: windy and calm; rainy, snowy and dry; hot, cold and moderate. Through long-term mentoring and repeated practice students grow increasingly confident and competent in wilderness survival skills like fire-making, shelter construction, and a variety of crafts like primitive pottery, wooden spoons, traps, cordage, and more. Natural Leaders is perfect for both complete beginners and passionate explorers alike, who will each grow tremendously.
