Our first Outdoor School, this past Fall, was such a huge success that we plan to offer it again this April, May, and June.
Enroll today to hold your spot! Payment plans available for additional fee.
We operate rain or shine!

These 4 days will be filled with adventure, learning, and opportunities to explore and play in God's amazing creation with friends and inspiring leaders.

Depending on enrollment ages and numbers, we plan to enroll kids ages 5-17 divided into three age groups (roughly 5-7, 8-10, and 11-17). Groups rotate through each session to experience a wide variety of activities. Some classes are mixed age groups because of the various bike sizes available. If enrollment numbers are low, the group may be one large group with all ages enjoying the various activities and classes and learning from each other like a one room school house.

In order to keep kids safe in this public space, we ask parents to volunteer and participate full or part time. Parents guide kids to each activity, where our teachers will facilitate the activity.  Parents also assist teachers and students as needed. A parent volunteer sign up list will be provided on our Band Communication Platform, to pick the dates and times to volunteer. If you are unable to volunteer (due to work, or very young siblings etc.), please plan to donate ingredients for the dutch oven cooking, and help donate/provide other materials/supplies as needed.

Items currently needed:

  • youth size life jackets (bring if you have one)

  • ingredient donations for the dutch oven cooking each day (pizza ingredients, cobbler ingredients, cake, mountain man breakfast (eggs, bacon, hash browns etc.), shepherds pie and or chili!

  • bring your personal bicycle helmet (if you have one).

What to bring:

  • Sack lunch

  • Wear layers:

  • Fleece jacket

  • Rain gear (pants and jacket) We play in the rain!

  • Hat

  • Gloves

  • Tennis shoes and rain boots (rain boots don't work for biking though)

  • Warm socks

  • Wear layers

  • Bicycle helmet with name on it

  • ingredients for dutch oven cooking (sign up on Band communication Platform)

Students who are not interested in mountain biking may join the younger Nature Free Play time. We have youth and adult Trek Mountain Bikes. Students may bring their own bicycle as long as it has been inspected by your local bike shop and is in excellent working order.  Otherwise plan to use our new high quality bikes.

$155 per student

 

April-Enrollment opens in November

MAY​- Enrollment open

  • Fridays,  FULL

​June-Enrollment open

September -If we have low enrollment for one of the two days, we will combine.  We can refund you if you cannot switch days.

Please note:

*After online enrollment, we do not refund, credit or transfer from one program or class to another day, program or class. If we happen to have a full program, we may be able to use your funds towards another student, but this is rare.  The reason for this policy is we do not have the staffing time to make changes and or have enough enrollment numbers to backfill spots that had been reserved.  This leads to insufficient funds to run the program. Iit is expensive to run our programs (insurance, permits, equipment provided, staffing, etc. it all adds up), and we hate to cancel a class due to student cancellations and low enrollment numbers. Please consider this before committing to this exciting program. Thank you for your understanding.
