What is your teaching philosophy?

White Pine Wilderness Academy is an aboriginal technologies school at it’s core. Children will learn about the philosophies, traditions and craft from a variety of ancient cultures. We see the skills of wilderness survival as completely intertwined with the peoples who developed these technologies and arts. We will tell stories from a specific culture that connects a lesson to a skill they are learning, and play games that help develop the awareness, physical strength and attention skills needed to be a naturalist and practitioner of the survival arts. Adults who have an interest in primitive skills are encouraged to incorporate the same activities into their practice. Please contact us if you have more questions
