An intensive five-day course designed for forest school practitioners. January 10 - 14 2022.
Join us on a learning retreat - Live at our forest school farm property for five days while immersing yourself in a gentle and positive learning experience. You will leave feeling inspired and invigorated by practical lessons, thoughtful conversations, and good food. Experts in te ao māori, bushcraft, outdoor survival, and education will share knowledge guided by lead instructor Dani Lebo.
Running concurrently with our holiday program, this is truly a course where you will get to see, play, and learn first-hand. We will explore a variety of urban, rural, beach, and forest settings while improving our outdoor skills. We will dive deep into how your teaching can work towards decolonization, equitable access, and the deconstruction of barriers between learner and teacher.
Course numbers will be limited to a small group of learners. Participants will receive a certificate for 40 hours of training upon completion.
$1500 includes room and board and all learning materials. Rooming will be shared accommodation with camping an option if preferred.
