About This Event

This fall GROWE is offering nature immersion, attribute curriculum children’s programs. The programs will encompass a wide assortment of experiential and inquiry play-based learning.  Children will be immersed in outdoor self-directed play and educational activities all day!

During the school strike, enroll your children in our outdoor nature based school days that will get your wild ones outside, active as well as generate their curiosity and connection to nature.  Your little ones will be guided on their adventure by highly qualified passionate leaders that are trained in Wilderness First Aid.

Ages 5-11 years old

Programs run from 9am-4pm. Drop off and pick up from 8:30am-4:30pm

1:8 leader to child ratio

We live in an information rich and connection poor society. Children are consuming information without generating curiosity for learning and connections to themselves, community and nature. The current school system is concentrating on subject curriculum and not attribute curriculum. Outdoor knowledge was once an important part of our everyday living, but has now been misplaced through the generations from lack of education and nature connection. There is a need in our community to add nature connection opportunities to the children’s lives of today. It takes a village to raise a child.

Come fall in love with nature with us while we explore what nature is doing to get ready for winter.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

After participating in more yoga classes and events this year than in my entire life, I am yearning for the opportunity to attend a professional retreat. The opportunity to grow my practice, learn from talented students and teachers, and immerse myself in this gorgeous Red Feather Lakes sanctuary is the dream of a lifetime! Sara

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
