Foxwalk Forest School supports children ages 5-7 to explore the natural world together, learn ancient wilderness living skills, and build self-confidence, teamwork, and knowledge of self, nature, and community.  Students are guided by longtime VWS lead instructor and program director Bob Etzweiler, with over 17 years of experience sharing the natural world with children and guiding groups in the outdoors, along with other experienced Vermont Wilderness School staff. We maintain a ratio of no more than 6 children to one instructor. Foxwalk was initiated by a group of parents seeking nature-based learning opportunities for their young children.

FoxWalk is a program about building and fostering relationships.  It’s by creating connections to each other and the natural world that our curiosity is stirred and learning flows. Our days are filled with play, exploration, stories, wilderness skills and fun…lots of fun! We are guided by the combined passions of the children and staff, the seasons and weather, and the unique magic that each day has to offer.
