This program is an opportunity for homeschool students to learn skills with a professional instructor while socializing in a small group setting. In the four-hour class we will have two skills workshops on various topics that relate to outdoor, survival, homesteading, building and creating that can count as science, math and art courses (examples: shelter building, first aid, homemade food and home products, creating art with natural/recycled materials). All activities will include hands on experiential learning. Most workshops will take place on the screened teaching porch or outside. Due to Covid-19: class size is limited, we will learn in the fresh air and spread out, there will be many opportunities for handwashing, and when we need to come indoors or be near each other for an activity, masks must be worn.
This program is designed for students 8 years and older. You are welcome to drop off your child and take a break if desired! We are close to downtown Gainesville, UF, and many nature walking and bicycling trails. Children 5-7, or those who need extra support, are welcome with parent/guardian supervision.
