Apprentice’s Journey, Earth Skills Description Ages 13-17

Crafting options: Bow, quiver & Arrow making or Leather & woodworking (choose either!)

Earth Skills camp is focused week of working on either Bow-making and Archery, or Leather and woodworking. Campers will spend the week crafting their own handmade bow, leather quiver and arrows or a leather backpack, knife handle and leather sheath. Both tracks of this session will involve woodworking with files, and leather stitching. There are other tools and materials used during both tracks individually.

Throughout the week we will go on creek walks, pick wild edibles, and harvest our own vegetables from the farm!

In the evenings, we will build campfires, go on night hikes, play capture the flag, tell stories, and sing songs together. Students will spend all of their time outside, including camping out overnight in individual tents!

Earth Skills is taught by expert craftsman Peter Yencken. Peter has taught crafting with children and adults for many years and campers love his gentle, carefully guided mentorship. The days will be filled with learning the skills and tools used to create your own handmade product, and later on using it to practice archery, carve, and carry your belongings. All of the materials will be provided.
