With many area students out of school this day, this adventure is just the ticket for kids eager to get outside and go exploring. Brave Bears includes fun, hands-on indoor and outdoor experiences that cultivate a deeper relationship with the natural world. Time in nature increases health, happiness, and well-being in kids. Youth will make new friends while learning about animals that live in Vermont– their winter adaptations and how humans track them - before embarking on a snowshoeing adventure in the forest and field, collecting clues left in the snow by wild animals. Campers will practice snowshoeing skills through entertaining games and a scavenger hunt.

Unplug from electronics and reconnect with nature! We build confidence and independence by teaching nature wilderness skills in a safe and fun group environment. Wonder is our goal! 

Kids should bring a hearty bagged snack, lunch, and a water bottle carried in a backpack and wear appropriate late winter clothing and gear to this day of adventure. Snowshoes will be necessary. We have a number of snow shoes fitting for young children that can be borrowed upon reservation.

If you have any questions, please feel encouraged to reach out! Please email our Director of Education, Kimberly at to inquire about Brave Bears.
