Wild Ways
Natural Education

Home Page

Each day at Wild Ways we fully immerse ourselves in Natural Education; using primitive tools, materials, and the natural environment, students are encouraged to follow their own will and imagination on the pathways of discovery and creativity. This segues to the super learning that occurs during the blissful sense of timelessness individuals feel when given the freedom to find out what they are impassioned to find out—at their own pace. 

The love of learning is born into each and every soul. Intrinsic to human survival, and the thriving of our species, the love of learning drives the unique development of intelligence in every person--as it has driven the evolution of intelligence for our species--and therefore, the evolution of us.  We did not develop large brains from staring at computer screens, nor from being bombarded with information, nor even from reading books. 
This amazing process most certainly was not dictated to us.  It came about as a result of us following our inspirations practicing primitive skills, which are ever creative, inventive, imaginative, and yet grounded in actual physics. 

We, as educational guides, need
not inspire within any child that which nature already has. We need simply to recognize the divine and unique genius already living in each individual—allow it, nourish it, encourage it! 

Wild Ways programs offer diverse activities for varied levels of ability and areas of interest in a primitive setting.  Ongoing subjects of exploration, depending on individual readiness and group dynamic, include: Tracking, Shelter Building, Fire Making, Primitive Woodworking, Woods Lore, Plant and Tree Identification, Wild Crafting, Buck Skinning, Leather Craft, Bow  Making, Lost Proofing, Primitive Orienteering, Story Telling, and Nature Immersion Mythic Adventure Role Playing Games.  Wild Ways was created in 2004 as an After School, Weekend, & Summer Camp initiative for middle school students. It soon expanded to include home schooling and non-schooling, and un-schooling individuals seeking to educate as nature intended.  The age range has also expanded over time, to encourage natural mentoring between older and younger individuals in a tribe dynamic when appropriate--yet allowing space and time, also, for the natural separation that occurs when individuals of specific aged groups just need each other.  Wild Ways offers Weekend Workshops, Wilderness Treks, Summer Day Camps, Overnights, and Mythic Adventures for children and adults. Several of our current counselors attended Wild Ways as younger children and have developed skills and maturity that allow them to assist as mentors and adds to the natural tribal feeling of the group.
