The Forest Family Retreat
The Forest Family Retreat
Fall Program: October 8-10, 2021
In today's world, moms and dads are faced with so many more challenges, and having a community of people to support them and their children is even more crucial then it was years ago.
Our Forest Family Retreat with your kids will give YOU a chance to cultivate friendships with other like-minded moms and dads, that will last well beyond the days spent at the retreat. You'll discover ways to help your children unplug and connect with the natural world, learn valuable skills and experiences that will support your family for years. You'll return home feeling rejuvenated and inspired, with memories you and your family will continue to treasure!
Our Forest Family Retreats are offered seasonally, Spring, Summer and Fall. Each season, you'll learn a variety of skills and activities that pertain to that season. It's a wonderful way for your child to connect to the natural world and experience the change of seasons.
You and your family will have an opportunity to learn a variety of "forest skills" from making natural remedies, to wilderness survival and camping skills, to gathering and preserving seasonal wild foods.
You'll wake in the morning to the smell of fresh coffee brewing and herbal tea infusions as a healthy breakfast awaits your family. All our meals are prepared in our farmhouse and are healthy and delicious using the freshest ingredients possible. Homemade soups and breads, stews and fresh salads and of course, making smores around the campfire is always a favorite! We are happy to accommodate food allergies and sensitivities, vegetarians and provide a gluten-free menu upon request.
Where will we sleep?
We have charming, hand-built, timber frame cabins with bunk beds, located just at the edge of the woods. We also have large, family tents for the ultimate camping experience. If you prefer a cabin, please request it when you are registering. They are available on a first to sign-up basis. You are required to bring your own bedding(sleeping bag and pillow) which is listed on our equipment list that you'll receive as part of your registration packet.
Please note, our cabins are not heated. If coming in the fall or spring, please bring extra blankets or sleeping bags to ensure a warm and cozy night's sleep.
Eagle House, our newly built classroom and bathhouse has bathrooms(one being handicapped accessible) with two outdoor showers with a spectacular view of the valley.
Your child will have fun going on stream walks, playing games and working on nature crafts while connecting with other kids in the program.
Most importantly, they'll have opportunities that foster a deep connection with nature, helping them to relax, feel confident, be inspired, get grounded and get a sense of their inner self(nature).
You'll also come together as families and learn shelter building, fire making and coal burning as you sit around an evening campfire listening to Hawk Circle stories and lore.
Itinerary subject to change due to weather, interest and time of year.
