Forest Ninja

Grades 4-7     June 22-26, 2020 FULL

Move quietly across the landscape without being seen or perceived. Observe without being observed. Quiet the mind so you may hear clearly. Sharpen your skills and maintain your safety and those around you. Read clearly the signs of the forest and respond appropriately.  

We will spend a week in the woods learning stalking, awareness, camouflage, martial arts and more. Skills will be taught and then tested through a series of challenges and scenarios that culminate in an immersive field day.  Each day begins with basic martial arts training and meditation. Then we will break into groups and go deep into the skills of the forest ninja, later testing ourselves in ever more difficult challenges. The skills taught have applications in everyday life as well as instilling a synergy of movement in the forest.
