Homeschool Seasons

Our program is divided into 3 seasonal terms. While each season features specific Trackers Guilds, we still include experiences from other Guilds each term.

Fall Term (9 weeks) Fall features our Rangers Guild. Focus on essential outdoor skills like archery, wilderness survival, and outdoor safety. Learn to build shelters, light fire with no matches, and forage for seasonal wild plants. Begin training in games of forest while developing the foundations of tracking and nature awareness.

Winter Term (6 weeks) Winter features our Artisans Guild. During the cooler months, get time in our ceramics and woodworking studios. Older Trackers (age 9-11) also learn blacksmithing. Delve into earth arts: basket weaving, leatherwork, woodcarving and more. Also embark on epic stealth adventures of immersive tales rooted in the natural world.

Spring Term (9 weeks) Spring features our Wilders & Mariners Guilds. Travel to the farm to care for animals, plant gardens, and forage for wild plants. Explore our local waterways, fishing, boating, and developing water safety skills. Outdoor cooking is a key component of this season, as we prepare all the foods we forage and catch over the campfire.




Call to Action

We teach the art of Tracking, which gives young people the tools needed to navigate the human and natural world. A Tracker is ready and gritty, training in outdoor skills. A Tracker is a caretaker with their Team, contributing to their greater community through self-discipline and service.

Every day is rooted in Tracking as a game and core learning philosophy. All year long, train to become a master tracker. Follow the trails of elk, fox, bobcat, and more. Learn to decode bird language, using their calls to locate other wildlife and people in the forest.
