Clovis Program Corinth

Tue, 02/28/2017 - 9:00am to Tue, 05/30/2017 - 3:00pm

The Clovis Program is focused on the ancient human lineage of hunter-gatherer cultures and the lessons they have to teach us.   There are two, 12 session semesters, one spring and one fall which can be taken together or separately. The program is for students 8-12.

Each week the students will be guided to further their education of wilderness self-reliance and naturalist studies. Each semester will have three to five themes that will run throughout, informing the curriculum,  allowing us to go deeper into the subject and ensuring the students engage with the information and skills in a variety of ways. This creates a more thorough education and helps to build lasting understanding of our studies.

This year the themes for Clovis are:

Fall:  Plant Journaling     Friction Fire     Wood Carving       Natural Fibers       Awareness Games

Spring:  Wildlife Tracking   Mammal Studies  Winter Trees and Teas  Accuracy Games

In learning these skills students get an opportunity to cultivate personal strength and understanding of oneself. Each day at the Clovis Program includes time working on core skills such as tracking and awareness, hands on projects with natural materials, and time learning about the landscape. As the months go by students begin to build their knowledge and understanding through practice and study, and experience the achievement of completing long term skills projects.  In order to ensure student to teacher ratios we will be limiting the class size to twelve students per group.
