EDUCATION FOR KIDS
Outside in Nature
Specializing in free-range kids, Peter Bergin teaches kids mindfulness and respect for the world they live in. The OSIN DNC Programs are designed to reconnect you and your child with Nature. It offers the opportunity to forge lasting personal relationships with all aspects of the Natural World in a healthy, fun, and regenerative way. You will deepen these relationships through core routines of awareness, tracking and bird language, along with hands on skills and crafts. They will have fun getting wet, dirty, muddy, cold, and tired as well as enjoy the warm breezes and comfortable coastal climate. All activities will be playful and safe while challenging adults and children and stretching your ‘comfort zone’.
At Vilda, we strengthen our connections to the natural world. We spend time outdoors with our hands in the dirt and feet on the ground. We plant trees, clear brush, look for frogs, eat wild plants, make a fire by friction or dye a shirt with berries. We learn real skills that allow us to remember that we truly are an important part of this landscape. The kids in our programs experience hands-on that they can make a positive difference in the world.
