The Florida Earthskills Gathering brings people of all ages together to share and learn skills that increase connection to the natural world, each other and ourselves.
Kids programs at Florida Earthskills this year will include activities for infants through age 12! Youth Village will be a home base for kids, and will include a morning circle for youth, craft projects and lots of fun and engaging activities for children. Each morning, experienced instructors will take youth ages 7-12 on woods adventures for the Nature Immersion Program. They will play games, explore nature, and participate in skill immersions. Each afternoon, there will be a variety of classes geared specifically for youth. Special youth activities include art projects, child led choices, nature games, activities, aerial classes, and more! The themes of the classes and activities for the Youth Village this year will center around Wilderness Skills, Crafts, Painting, Games, Arts, Music and Movement, and Storytelling. Come out and play with us! Please remember that all minors must have a legal guardian with them at the event unless other arrangements are made with the core organizing team well in advance. Teens are welcome to take classes with adults and to be a part of the larger community. If a teenager would like to volunteer to help in Youth Village they need to check in with Nora or Mandy.
