After so much snow this year I think we are more ready than ever for Spring! Of course, we could get a noreaster at any moment now. 🙂 But none-the-less we are indeed gearing up for our Spring Homeschool semester. Wohoo!
I wanted to announce to everyone the additions of TWO NEW PROGRAMS …. in response to our growing family needs and feedback. On Tuesday, we will be offering the EXPLORERS …. for ages 7-11. Folks who’s older children take the wilderness skills, you now have a option for your younger children as well. Wednesday we will be offering PIONEERS 1 ….. for new or first year Pioneers. Many Pioneers have been here now for two or three years, and are ready to do new things and not repeat. It will give all of our Pioneers, both new and returning, a much richer curriculum.
So…. our Spring will look like THIS:
(All days are from 9am – 3pm.)
Wilderness Skills ages 12-17. *FULL*
This spring will be concentrated on Bow and Arrow skills…. *please be sure your child has theirs in advance.* Plenty of camouflage attire is recommended!
Habitat Explorers ages 7-11. *In Need of MORE participants
Lots of exploring! Hiking, collecting, games, identification, tracking, animal stalking, and creative learning. A bit of everything. I’d like this group to evolve into a “green” group, taking on subjects and projects pertaining to conservation and sustainability.
