Two Weeks in Puyallup/Tacoma in 2022

June 27 – July 1, 2022 in Puyallup: Wilderness Survival Craft in its 25th year is excellent for hands-on learners ages 7-13 who are interested in the projects and lessons we cover.

July 11-15, 2022 in Puyallup: Wild Cooking & Herbology is in its 24th year for focused learners ages 7-13, as it is like a mini college course on herbalism (although very hands-on) and therefore not recommended for adhd students.
