An eight-month apprenticeship in outdoor education and the rewilding arts...
Shadowy forces are building amidst the summer heat as the Big Man plots his next move to overtake the Wildwood Forest. The Feral Folk have called a council with the Elders and they are now inviting the Wildwood Questers to return for an epic yearlong adventure to protect the forest. The Questers have only begun to learn the ways of the wild in this summer's camps, and will have the opportunity to continue deepening their skills in this yearlong journey.
Wildwood Guardians will hone skills in archery, stealth, agility, plant medicine, tracking and handcraft as they face down Borgs and interact with the many mystical beings who support and challenge them in their journey to live in harmony with the forest. The adventure will take place one Saturday per month from September through March and culminate with a final all day LARP and overnight campout in April.
A group of teens are invited to join in this journey, supporting the clan guides as they learn, while also honing skills alongside the Guardians. Apprentices will play characters that reflect aspects of their unique personality and gifts, and who challenge, teach and boff with the children. Each afternoon after the children return home through the time portal, the teens will camp out in the Wildwood and enjoy an evening of scout games, archery, creative improv and fireside meals.
This apprenticeship is an opportunity for teens to deepen skills in the rewilding arts, to gain experience as an outdoor educator and facilitator, and to have a break from school and life pressures to enjoy some down time with friends by the camp fire.
