March Break Retreat

We are excited to be offering our sixth annual March Break Nature Retreat! This retreat will offer you a chance to rejuvenate in nature’s beauty, deepening your connection to, and understanding of, the natural world. We will be expanding our awareness & knowledge, while exploring some of the many uses of nature’s gifts. Learn new skills to bring back to the classroom or integrate into your life with friends, family, or at work. Families are welcome to attend and learn new ways to connect in the outdoors as a family.
Some of this years activities may include: learning to felt, making pine needle baskets, tracking wolves and other creatures through the snow, winter games and fires, learning about what we call “coyote mentoring”, sharing great food and so much more. Come alone, with a friend or with your family and deepen your connection to the land in the Algonquin Winter Wonderland!
