Learn Trackers Skills

Trackers Outdoor Preschool is divided into three seasonal terms where children play and grow with the skills of our four Trackers Guild: Rangers, Wilders, Mariners, and Artisans. While each season features one specific Guild, we include experiences and activities from other Guilds as well.

Fall Term (13 Weeks) features our Rangers Guild teaching outdoor skills of stealth, archery, and wilderness survival. We learn the ancient art of animal tracking, following the trails of bobcat, rabbit, red fox, and deer!

Winter Term (12 Weeks) features our Artisans Guild teaching in the art studio, where we craft from nature using clay, leather, wood and more. We also embark on immersive adventures that teach about the natural world.

Spring Term (9 Weeks) features our Wilders & Mariners Guilds teaching skills of earth and water. We dig in the garden, forage wild plants, and caretake the land fishing, catch crawdads and frogs, and cook over a campfire.

As our Kindergartners grow to become young Trackers, they follow the trails of deer, rabbits, and foxes to discover their mysteries. They also learn to decode bird language, using forest songs and calls to help find other wildlife.

Find Your Potential

At Trackers Outdoor Kindergarten, we believe that time spent in nature is crucial for the healthy development of young minds and bodies. Our program is led by highly trained educators who are passionate about working with young children and dedicated to helping each student reach their full potential.
