Fridays 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Rolling Ridge Study Retreat (near Harpers Ferry, WV)

Kids ages 6-12 are invited to join us for a time of exploration, wonder and creation. Each session will include a short walk in the woods where we’ll play games and connect with a sense of place through ancestral arts and wilderness awareness skills: building a lean-to, using our “fox ears” to listen, practicing our camouflage like a fawn, weaving with materials we find in the forest, nature-inspired art projects and more!

$20 per session (sibling discounts available)

What to bring:

  • Water bottle
  • Packed lunch/snacks
  • Sturdy shoes for woods-wandering

We ask all participants to wear masks whenever the group is indoors. Partcipants can choose whether or not to mask when outdoors. 

There are two adult teachers with the group at all times.

Lead Instructor, Luke Bauer, is an educator and father of two. He leads workshops on basket-making, plant identification, primitive skills, wilderness awareness and permaculture. For more than a decade he has worked to connect himself and others to the local landscape.
