Grade School retreats offered at the Earth and Spirit Center create a day experience that cultivates a small community through the discovery of spirituality in nature, service to the land, empathy and compassion, and new tools such as mindfulness through meditation. Children are able to be outside with nature, something that seems to be in short supply in our age of digital entertainment. Getting their feet on the hiking trails, their hands in the dirt, and all their senses engaged in nature is a powerful way for children to feel their deep connection to the natural world. Retreats can be customized based on the interest of each school. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
