Earth Shakers is an impactful wilderness program for youth in grades 6-8.
Teens today face many challenges. Through wilderness skills, asset-building experiences, and through the support of skilled mentors, youth will experience lots of fun engaging learning, and deep inner connection with themselves and with their community.
Each week, we will be focussing on different skills and projects that will build team building, negotiation skills, wilderness skills, storytelling, expand on quiet sit spot inner meditation, storytelling and more. Integrated in this program will the the NBCC’s program “Together We Can” with the mentorship of Stephanie Ruckstuhl. Stephanie is one of the co-creators of the program at NBCC. We will also have guests to speak on various perspectives and share skills and community projects.
Throughout the 15 weeks, we will be encouraging everyone’s voices to be heard and share who they are in intentional voices. At the end of the day, our goal is to empower and foster a sense of belonging to themselves and the world through their own vitality. At the end of the term, we will have an overnight campout on the property. Date TBD.
