Forest Days

Forest Days at Road Less Travelled Academy are full-day programs complimenting a child's classroom or homeschool learning with outdoor exploration. Participants spend one day per week in an 8-10 week session at the Ganaraska Forest.

Participants engage with various nature connection activities including bushcraft, survival skills, tracking, plant and animal identification, natural arts, and wild edibles. More importantly, the participants are immersed in a full day of dirt-digging, worm-picking, mud-skipping, tree-climbing, butterfly-chasing, and friend-making.  They will come home dirty, tired, happy and inspired.

Participants will be encouraged to take calculated risks helping them strengthen self-awareness, confidence and decision-making skills. Forest Day participants will share their day with RLT Academy's full-time students, allowing for group partnering to enrich both programs. The curriculum is designed to engage children 4 - 10 years old.
