Forest School

Mud City Forest School | Now Registering for Spring 2024

A once-a-week full-day program entirely outdoors at the beautiful Lamoille County Nature Center located in Morristown, VT for youth aged 7-14.

The Lamoille Nature Conservation District’s forest school program is thriving! Mud City Forest School is a once-a-week, full-day program located entirely outdoors at the beautiful Lamoille County Nature Center in Morristown. We acknowledge that this land is the traditional land of the Nulhegan Band of the Coosuk Abenaki Nation.

May contain: advertisement, poster, and person

Each day consists of outdoor skills such as fire-building, forest safety, weather prediction, cooking, and quiet observation. We also incorporate storytelling, puzzles, and free play in nature. Youth use creative problem-solving to build fort structures, cut new trails, and work together to complete goals. We use movement games to learn about Vermont’s ecology and wildlife and how animals, plants, and people interact. 

Mud City Forest School is committed to providing interest-based learning and choices for youth; examples of options include art, engineering, games, and opportunities for research into special topics. Youth will learn to use tools and develop teamwork skills. Above all, we will explore the natural world with curiosity, joy, respect, and gratitude. We hope you will join us. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions. Mud City Forest School is geared for youth aged 7-14.
