Join us for an action-packed adventure 3-day workshop as we combine skills of nature, awareness, high energy games, and introductory arts of the ancient ninja. We will meet at a local conservation area, where students will learn hands-on wildcrafting skills, practice fire by friction and shelter making, and develop the art of becoming invisible on a landscape through movement and earthen camouflage.  Students will also learn outdoor art-making skills, including woodworking, sculpture, and natural paint calligraphy. Students in week 1 will receive Level 1 Ninjas in Nature Certification and a rank T-shirt and certificate by Pathways Dojo.
