Wolves (ages 10-14)


Wednesdays 9am to 4pm

Honing skills, Developing our gifts, Service, & Resilience.

The Wolves program is for experienced outdoor schoolers aged 10-14.  It is a continuation &  consolidation of skills engaged in previous years.    Wolves fosters a balance between self-sufficiency & co-operative work  by showing how individual gifts inevitably enrich community.  The program engages the “hard skills” of fire-tending, shelter building, tracking, and tool use - balanced with the “soft skills” of listening and speaking well, awareness, and stewardship.   

What to expect

Like all GOS programs, Wolves supports young people in becoming themselves. Our goal is to support kids in becoming increasingly capable, compassionate, & service minded.  Our model promotes the attributes of connected kids, which are; Quiet Mind, Common Sense, Aliveness and Agility, Inquisitive Focus, Caring and Tending, Service to Community, Awe and Reverence, and Self-Sufficiency. 

Learning and development happens consistently and invisibly through story-telling and song, thrilling games and nature-based challenges, hands-on tasks, reflective moments in wild spaces, role-modelling & mentorship.
