What exactly will happen?


During the week participants may find themselves feasting on delicious meals harvested from farm or forest plants and animals, developing strength and agility with a capoeira kick or yoga posture, mixing clay to build an outdoor pizza oven, or playing a game in the forest that trains survival skills. There will be a wide range of facilitated activities, all designed to have fun connecting to the earth, such as:

  • Farming and gardening
  • Wild foraging in the forest
  • Survival skills
  • Capoeira, yoga, storytelling
  • Ecological building
  • Music sessions
  • Visual arts
  • Lots of cooking and eating

To top it all off, participants will receive a certificate of completion that will attest to the skills and capacities that they developed during the week.


We seek to assemble a diverse group of adolescents for a unique program of activities rooted in earth-based philosophies, to promote an exchange of thoughts, histories and cultural dialogues and to promote youth empowerment and mobilization.
