Wild Montana (ages 6-13)
September 13, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:30am on Tuesday, repeating until November 7, 2016
Tuesdays: This totally unique Tuesday experience offers a multi-age learning environment to participants; it is really three classes in one: Montana Mysteries, Jr. Survival Skills and Teen “Montana” Mentoring. Instructors, Clark Patton and Elaine Anderson-Wood will lead participants in a wide-range of activities that relate to eNDVR’s fall SURVIVE theme and Friday field trips. Teens who sign up for the mentoring portion will help with instruction as well (TEENS – please sign up for the free “Wild Montana Mentorship” class). One of the highlights of the class includes learning a few outdoor cooking techniques from guest instructor, Shayna Adams.
Students will rotate between two groups, engaging in tracking adventures, learning the language of birds and learning about many useful outdoor survival skills. In addition, students will choose their favorite “crazy character” from early Montana history to learn about. That knowledge will then be passed along to others in the form of a skit, a blog, journal-type entries or another fun format. From plant roots to history roots, this class offers true adventure to all those who participate! Middle through high school students have the opportunity to earn credit in history, language arts, biology, drama, photography, community service and other areas depending upon personal project goals and interests. This course runs from 9:30-3:30 and transportation is included. If a student needs to leave early, he/she will have to be picked up at Blue Mountain Bed and Breakfast by a parent or guardian.
9:40-10:00 transportation from eNDVR to the Blue Mountain B&B’s outdoor learning center.
