Hawks are some of the most powerful birds of the air. They are both beautiful and frightening at the same time. They have a keen sense of sight and are powerful in flight and in hunting. On breezy days you can watch them soaring in the air in their majestic flight.
In the Hawks After School Program we will develop our keen sense of sight through scout skills and We will play games that will invite us to be like the animals living on the land – we will learn to move both swiftly and silently on our adventures.
There will be opportunities for wander and foraging in the woods for medicinal plants and edible plants.
We will gather around the fire to share stories and stretch our imaginations.
We will work on skills such as knife carving, knife sharpening, building with natural materials.
We hang out and talk about life while exploring the forest with friends.
And… There are SO many more things we can and will do!
Every program at Wild Intelligence has its own flavor. The Hawks Afterschool Program will be no different. This program is geared specifically for our Middle School Aged Participants. We know this a time in life where transition is inevitable and frightening. We believe that having this process steeped in good friends, awesome and fun mentors while learning skills of our ancestors can only help build confidence and trust in oneself and one’s world.
Every week this program will be different and it will constantly be changing because every afternoon will be planned specifically for the participants in the program – based on what they are interested in and what their skilled mentors observe they need and want. The program will evolve with them each participant having a voice equal to their peers. It’s going to be a great year!
