OPEN HOUSE - Great Hollow Wilderness School!

Great Hollow Wilderness School

Whole Earth Homeschool Program
FREE Open House
March 6th 9:00am to 12:00pm

Come get a taste of what Great Hollow has to offer your homeschoolers!! We are offering this FREE Open House to families who have never experienced Great Hollow Wilderness School.

The Whole Earth program consists of several weekly classes focused on Nature based education or adventure leadership. We develop long term mentoring relationships with our students as we facilitate a deeper connection to nature, other people, and themselves.

During our open house we will take you on a nature walk, participate in some of our favorite nature awareness games and team building initiatives and explore some of the beautiful places we visit during our programs. You will get a chance to meet some current students who can give your children an idea of a student’s perspective.

Space is limited, so call 203.746.5852 to reserve a spot and get directions!!

Coming of age: Spring

The Earth turns in her growing skin, uncomfortably like a first sip of wine or a first kiss. The sun glows down, seducing the green from slumber, like a dance from Baubo. The snow, on it's way down to the roots, turns an ugly shade of slop, sticking angrily to our pants and boots, as if to stamp her adolescent complaint on our day. The ground melts and freezes, melts and freezes, obeying the shapeshifting weather. Mother in her round power soothes her belly with bird songs and wintergreen leaves crushed under paws. She breathes up the birch sap with each contraction, giving flow to life and anesthesia to winter's sting. She sings up a grand Menarche in each Maple trunk, and releases the snowdrop munchkins from hiding. She hums the bears awake and cracks the chains of early dusk. Grandmother drum keeps the veil thin while Spring becomes.
