"I love Wilderness School! It is a great way to learn what the Indians did and it helps me learn about ways to survive in the wilderness alone." - Brian, an Owle student
OWLE (Outdoor Wilderness Living Experience) is
our day long Friday or
Saturday program. Students spend each day, sharing responsibilities as a
practicing skills that all our ancient ancestors once knew. We play
games together, learn together and do chores together. Students learn
how to build emergency shelters, make primitive arrows, identify
different plants and their many uses, collect pitch from conifers for
glue, make their own camp utensils, learn about animals and their
behavior, learn bird identification and their special language, learn
the correct way how to make a fire pit, and build and maintain a fire.
Then there is lunch, learning to cook over a fire, that’s another new
experience. What fun!
This unique program is offered on two different days, two different times a year. Fall Owle begins in mid September and runs through to mid December. Spring begins the first weekend of March and runs through mid June. The Friday program is held at “Bear Creek Camp” and "Cedar Camp" in Woodinville. While the Saturday program will continue to be held at “Coyote Camp” in the Edmonds. Both programs will begin at 10 am and go until 4 pm. Ages 8-15. Shorter Winter and Summer OWLE programs are also offered.
Come join the students of Quiet Heart learning about nature and having fun.
For OWLE is truly learning by DOING and BEING there.
