Earth Skills and Bushcraft Yearlong Immersion Program Details

Beginning in 2007, the Earth Skills Semester Program will be expanded into a yearlong experience consisting of 25-30 intensive weeks per year, with the interim periods spent reading, writing and researching.

The yearlong program won’t be replacing our semester programs. Instead, it will be connecting them into a deeper, more complete learning program. Overlap between courses will be minimized, and large projects won’t be repeated in the spring and fall. During the period between courses students will have independent work to complete including reading, writing and studies of the natural world. We’ll communicate regularly via email and phone, as well as face to face if geography permits.

Students may begin their studies with us during the spring, fall, or winter course, but may not start with the remote summer trip.

Following their first course, students can take successive courses at a discounted tuition. While students are encouraged to express their interest in the yearlong program, there isn’t a special application process or a financial commitment up-front. Instead, after taking a course and determining that they want to continue their studies, they simply let us know. Yearlong program students will be given priority in course placement.

The tuition for the yearlong program, when started with the spring or fall semester, is as follows:

  • First 10-Week Semester: $6350
  • Winter Course: $2050
  • Second 10-Week Semester: $5350
  • Summer Remote Trip: $2050 – May vary depending on destination and trip length
  • Optional Fall Hunting Camp and Spring Fishing Camp: $350

The tuition for a student starting in with the winter course is:

  • Winter Course: $2550
  • First 10-Week Semester: $5850
  • Summer Remote Trip: $2050 – May vary depending on destination and trip length
  • Second 10-Week Semester: $5350
  • Optional Fall Hunting Camp and Spring Fishing Camp: $350

There is no time limit for a student to complete their coursework. This means that you can take your first course this year, then wait several years before continuing your coursework and still be eligible for the tuition discounts afforded to yearlong program students.
