Trackers Apprenticeship

Artisans Guild - Crafts, Role-Playing & Trackers Lore Craft art from clay, leather, and wood. Create epic live-action story adventures. Delve into Trackers Lore and Legend. Level up in the Game of Tracking!



Our Team

Our mentoring team includes our top Trackers staff featuring:

  • Expertise in mentoring and Trackers skills.
  • Low student-to-guide ratio facilitating personal, team-based learning.
  • Background checked with First Aid & CPR certification.
  • Trained in outdoor safety and the Trackers Earth curriculum.

Our Place

For Apprenticeships, we use buses or vans to journey from Trackers HQ to wilderness locations specific to the day's activity. Our destinations could include Trackers' private 351-acre wildlife park and our 100-acre farm and forest. When the weather calls for it, we might chose to stay closer to home, learning hands-on folk crafts in our art studios and visiting nearby nature parks.



Mentoring Programs

Our school-year programs aim to ignite an adventurous spirit in every student. Guides mentor Apprentices in Trackers skills to develop teamwork, connect to nature, and build independence. Our curriculum is tailored to each age group and adapts creatively to the unique interests of each team:

Grade 2-3: Encouraging fun, hands-on exploration and discovery.
