Why Outdoor School?

Outdoor School, Forest School & Nature School are often interchangeable names. They are outside nature based programs. These programs focus on the whole child, learning by doing and hands on experiential learning. It resonates with children, and teens.  They learn faster and understand more deeply. Forest Schools – Outdoor Schools such as Explorers Outdoor School,  often have play-based curriculum with the freedom to explore, developing their skills, interests and understanding the natural world around them.

Our teen program continues to grow in a variety of interests & classes. We will continue to offer more work trades & skills classes, hand work and opportunities to develop their interests, and work experience. 

WE ARE A STRONG COMBINATION OF EACH LEARNING MODALITY &  ENVIRONMENT

Explorers Outdoor School - Earth School 
                           
(formerly Coyote Willow Cooperative)

At Explorers Outdoor School of Idaho  we  flow with the rhythm of the seasons, We are a unique combination of natural environments & cultivation, with our  little woods, gardens, seasonal stream & pond, held on a natural farm. We have class among the wandering lamb, friendly turkey & goats. We hold bunnies and exposed to a variety of natural elements including learning the nature of a variety of animals and their calming effect. We have lessons under the willow tree,  in the garden and hold class at times in the tipi. Our permanent school gives us a home, a sense of belonging and ownership, familiarity. This also helps us to have supplies on hand, and an option to variety of environments within a class day.

Outdoor learning fosters resilience and heightens awareness of the natural world around you. Our curriculum & philosophy allows children to be kids. Love learning. Encourages and teaches holistic learning. We flow with the seasons, offering variety and increases experiential learning. We help develop independence and confidence to give it a try and see how they fly, and they do. We encourage one another, practice social-emotional skills and supported as we do.  We create & build both in activity, the child and our tribe her at Explorers Outdoor School of Idaho. It’s a great place to be a kid. Come earth school with us!
