About Living Earth School
Living Earth School offers award winning co-ed day camp and overnight camps for ages 5-18 years old. We are looking for Apprentices, Instructors, Coordinator and Operations and Logistics Support.
We aim to teach a holistic balance of skills to help the students understand their place in the natural world, their role in the community, and a better awareness of their passions and vision for life. We use coyote mentoring in our nature-based approach to help people connect with their place and to deepen their relationships. Our curriculum is nature based, developing naturalist skills, survival skills, animal tracking, edible/medicinal plants, and understanding the language of birds. We ask lots of questions because it nurtures self-sufficiency and curiosity. We utilize core routines that help students more fully immerse in nature, with all their senses. The benefits to the student are the excitement of discovery, a real connection with animals and plants, and a sense of belonging.
