Scholarship Applications for

Spring 2017 are due by February 1

Scholarship Information

Limited partial scholarships are available.  Scholarship funds are generated based on the number of full paying registrations and the generosity of donations toward the scholarship fund. Thus, scholarships are limited to the sum of these funds and are awarded based on equitable distribution.  Full scholarships are only considered under extenuating circumstances, and scholarship applicants should expect to pay at least half of tuition.  Sibling discounts may also be available for some programs, and if so, will be listed in the program description.

What's the difference between each program?

The fundamental principles used in designing the curriculum for all of our programs is the same(more information about the 8 Shields model can be found here).  The differences in each program arrive via:

  • the specific qualities of the various program locations
  • the strengths & passions each of the instructors bring to the table
  • the inclinations & curiosities of the children in each group
  • the unpredictable opportunities presented each day by nature itself  

Additionally our planned activities and mentoring techniques are adjusted to be age appropriate(e.g. more story-telling and sense-based exploration for younger children, and more focused naturalist knowledge and outdoors skills for older children).


All these elements synergistically come together in a way that is both intentional and open to spontaneity. The result is a connective learning experience for your children that enhances their relationship to the natural world, and leaves them hungry for more.
