Play, create, build, and explore in a winter wonderland of forest, field, and stream ecology. With warm layers, hot drinks and food, fire time, and lots of movement, we’ll stay toasty and learn how to find comfort outdoors in colder weather. The winter is a great time for tracking wildlife, building show shelters, and practicing fire skills.

Sliding Scale Tuition

The sliding scale tuition model is a type of fee structure that accounts for variability in assets, income, and expenses as an attempt to increase accessibility for people with less financial and/or class privilege. We recognize there are social, physical, and material barriers to accessing this type of programmaing as well.

If neither the subsidized or scholarship rates are accessible for your family, please contact us and let us know what your needs are. We are committed to making programs accessible to anyone who is interested and are actively fundraising to increase our capacity to reach this goal.

This model allows self selection of registration cost, please pay the actual cost of attendance if you do not experience difficulty meeting your family's basic needs such as housing, food, and transportation.

Early drop off and extended day payments

Where do you fall on the tuition scale? We believe that examining the intersection of privilege, wealth, and class is a lifelong process. The following questions are offered to provide starting points for exploring these topics, and not a definite tool for evaluating privilege and wealth.

Can afford to take time off or go on vacation.

Receive unearned or gifted income.

Have a retirement account or other investments.

Choose to work part time or not at all.

Make more than 75K per year.

Have no debt.

You might qualify to utilize the sliding scale if some or all of these apply to you:

Living paycheck to paycheck.

Struggle to pay minimum payments on debt.

Experience difficulty meeting basic needs like housing, food, and transportation.

Do not have savings.

Your ability to work or earn money is affected by illness, mental or physical disability.

Have to work more than 40 hours a week to make ends meet.
