About the Program
In this exciting day program, we will focus on reawakening our senses to the natural world through hands on exercises, critical observation and activities where students will be required to rely upon the skills of one another to accomplish tasks. We will focus on activating peripheral vision, blindfolded partner exercises, plant identification and how to walk with less disruption to the natural world.
We will study other animals as a model of how to move through woods attracting less attention, as well as learn about various local plants and how they can help us camouflage ourselves. To finish off the day, we will have a modified game of Capture the Flag where teams will be required to work together and combine their newly possessed skills to accomplish a shared goal.
