Guide to all Claws 2020 Trips

Claws camping trips take students 11-17 into wild places. We climb mountains, ford rivers and sea kayak.

Students test their edges and boundaries as they learn skills needed to overcome challenges. We move through fascinating terrain and waters, having fun while practicing mindfulness. We gain the ability to control our thoughts and movements—like seal, fish and birds, bear and bobcats do. We learn to read the great patterns of biomes, of weather, witnessing grand forces and elements expressing themselves.

Claws go into the wild because the wild is where they can grow—where they can grasp life, grip it tight and carry it aloft.

  • The River and the Machine: A Biocultural History of Holyoke Dam February 11, 2021
    WHAT IS BIOCITIZEN? The word “biocitizen” is a contraction of “biotic citizen,” a term and idea conceived by Aldo Leopold (1887–1948) who is widely celebrated for conceiving the “land ethic.” A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability, and beauty of the biotic community.
