Wilderness Skills Club is a family-friendly program where all ages are welcome. This is your opportunity for consistent practice and support while learning the skills of Trackers Earth. Bring a personal project to work on or join our instructors as they learn a skill alongside you!
The Four Guilds
- Rangers Guild
- Forest craft and wilderness survival, tracking and the Curriculum of Shadows.
- Wilders Guild
- Folk craft and homesteading, wild plants and the Wilders Garden.
- Mariners Guild
- Knots, fishing, navigation, boat building and the Ecological Compass.
- Artisans Guild
- Artisan crafts, improvisation, community leadership, storytelling and myth making.
Our Open Archery Range is available for $5! Bring your own gear (or rent ours for an additional $5).
Every Thursday evening for Trackers Club we also fire up the blacksmith forge. If you have taken Blacksmithing Basics with us before this is your opportunity to get more practice on the forge with the oversight of our instructors. Because blacksmithing requires specialized instruction and materials the forge has a fee of $10. Reservations for the forge are not required but highly recommended. Due to limited class size we cannot guarantee spot without a reservation.(Our last Open Forge before summer break will Thursday May 18, 2017)
- Important Note
- Our Blacksmithing Basics is required as a prerequisite.
All ages are welcome. Club events have an informal learning focus most useful for independent learners and adults. All children must be accompanied by an adult and parents are fully responsible for their children during the event.
