SMS hosts a variety of spring and summer camp programs for children ages 3-16.
Our programs connect kids with the natural world and their own true nature. We provide experiences that empower growth in self-awareness and independence, inspire cooperation through community living, and foster a deeper appreciation and respect for the ecology of the earth.
Our programs inspire skills of awareness and listening, teamwork, and empowerment as we learn:
Ancestral Crafts- basketry, water vessels, clay cookware, natural pigments
Primitive Skills- debris shelters, flint-napping, cordage, friction fire
Plant Wisdom- Identifying edible and medicinal plants, medicine making
Nature Awareness- tracking, bird language, camouflage, stalking, mapping
Community Connection- Storytelling, team building, games, songs
The Learning Village at SMS hosts educational programs which encourage reverence and relationship with the natural world and support integrated evolution of the whole human being.
