Student: Hailey, Class of 2027
Mentor: Tam Andrews
Hailey from the Bitney Prep Class of 2027, is interning at Fox Walkers Outdoor Education program, working alongside Mentor Tam Andrews.
Fox Walkers Youth Programs introduces Earth Skills, a blend of the ancient arts of tracking, wilderness survival, and nature awareness. Through their programs, a re-thinking of our connection to nature begins to occur. Nature is not simply a resource that we control as a product, but a relationship we must cultivate. Through hands-on skills, games, songs, and storytelling, they create an “invisible school”, where kids learn directly from the Earth while having tons of fun, laughing, and playing with each other. Their curriculum is inspired from Indigenous values and the Old Ways Earth Skills, largely learned from the Tracker School and through each Instructor’s own “dirt time” living these skills.
