All programs are now available for booking at the subsidized rates of:

Teachers who are current CBEEN members may access one complimentary program (with up to $250 in bussing cost reimbursement) for their classroom in the school year. Up to 200 complimentary programs are available for the 2021-2022 school year to teachers across the Basin on a first-come, first-serve basis.
We ask that teachers ensure that a program does not violate their school and/or district policies before booking. It is the responsibility of the teacher to confirm program suitability and communicate needs and questions to the Community Educator.
As with the previous school year, we have a COVID-19 policy in place for the 2021-2022 school year. Teachers booking programs are expected to read this plan in advance of their program to understand our policies and practices around offering programs this year.
Questions about the policy may be directed to the Wild Voices Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org

About the Program
This program is designed to educate students on survival situations; how to best prepare for wilderness adventures, mitigate risks and the important skills for managing incidents and surviving in the wilderness. We will practice survival skills so that students will have personal experience managing potential life threatening situations.
Lessons will include pre-trip planning, assessing and mitigating hazards, prioritization in the event of an incident, shelter and fire-building.
