Fox Walkers is an ongoing program designed for home-schoolers and public school students. As a Fox Walker, your child will gain hands-on instruction in the ancient arts of wilderness survival, animal tracking, and nature awareness.
For this all new Young Fox Walkers the lessons and activiities will be grared for 5-7 year old children.
Led by founder Rick Berry, Fox Walkers exposes children to the stories and teachings of Grandfather Stalking Wolf, a Lipan Apache elder who wander the western hemisphere for 60 years and handed down his teachings to the well-known author and teacher Tom Brown, Jr.
At Fox Walkers, we weave Grandfather’s philosophy of Earth-living into all the skills we teach.
Our Fox Walkers curriculum subtly engages students in a spontaneous flow of interactive learning opportunities that:
Strengthen powers of concentration, observation, and endurance
Provide access to deep reservoirs of self-confidence and self-knowing
Cultivate intimate, respect-full relationships between students, the Earth, and all who dwell upon her
Empower, inspire, and prepare students to become active, responsible caretakers of the Earth
As a result, Fox Walkers experience a different type of education. Encouraged to sit and read nature like an open book, they are rewarded by the magic of the natural world. They begin to have a deep understanding that the Earth is our home, that our home is much bigger than they once thought, and that care-taking this home is a great honor and responsibility.
