BU connects families to nature and each other. Our forest schools nourish the holistic health & education of children. Through child led learning, engaging STEM & science based activities, community service projects, creating communities, & equipping families to observe & explore our natural world, Barefooters thrive.
We believe kids of different ages, learn differently. All of our activities at BU are done family style, where kids of all ages can engage and learn from each other. Lessons aren’t forced. Each week has a theme and we strew supplies to allow kids curiosity to take root. The kids naturally will observe, analyze, or apply principles depending on their age. Play is always encouraged.
