Wild Ways
Natural Education

Home Page

Each day at Wild Ways we fully immerse ourselves in Natural Educationusing 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 only occurs during the blissful sense of timelessness students 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 survival, and beyond survival, it drives the development of each human being-- as it has driven the divine evolution of our species. It is what motivates all learning throughout life.

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!

The WildWays program offers 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 & Arrow Making, Lost Proofing, Primitive Orienteering, and Story Telling. For the 2014-15 After School Program, fall projects will include building Draw Shave Horses, and constructing a Pole Lathe with primitive tools.
Wild Ways was created in 2004 as an afterschool, weekend, & summer program for middle school students. This program has now been expanded to include homeschoolers, and encompasses a larger age range that allows for intermingling between age groups and natural mentoring between ages that occurs in a tribe dynamic. The small groups allow space and time for natural separation and affinity among students.Wild Ways also offers Weekend Workshops, Wilderness Treks, Summer Camp, Overnights, and Mythic Adventures for children and adults. Several of the current program assistants attended the program with as younger children and have developed skills and maturity that allows them to assist as mentors and adds to the natural tribal feeling of the group.
