When your child is with us, we understand their safety is our responsibility and this is an honor that we take seriously.
One of the first things we do with every new group is to teach hazard awareness of the landscape that is our classroom. We follow strict protocol regarding the use of carving knives, starting with passing our knife safety test. This is true for other activities that involve risk such as tree-climbing, or making and using throwing sticks or atlatls.
Since accidents can happen, at every class there is at least one staff member present who is certified as a Wilderness First Responder or Wilderness EMT.
We take pride in creating a safe environment for our students to experience the growth and self-discovery that comes from taking risks.
