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.
