Through The Trees

After School Trails Program

We are excited to share our Trails Program!

The Trails Program is a series of classes that guide students through specific milestones over the course of 10 week sessions. Classes are offered every weekday after school. We do provide transportation from Brunswick’s HBS and Coffin schools and there is a bus stop for Mt. Ararat and Woodside students.

There are two Trails offered each season:

In the Sacred Boundaries Trail, the students will acquire and perfect their breathing, stances, falling, blocks, strikes, kicks, asanas (yoga postures) and application techniques. As we enter the Spring Session, more classes will be held outside. Our younger and beginner friends (ages 5-10) will enjoy a free flow structure focusing on our Root Values and the fundamentals of Sacred Boundaries. Teaching will be delivered through games, challenges and nature immersion. Our experienced students (ages 9-17) will also benefit from a more disciplined structure where they can learn and grow to their fullest potential.

In the Nature/Survival Skills Trail, the students will acquire & hone their understanding of Nature Survival skills.
Our Winter Session is focusing on Fire Building where the students are acquiring & honing their understanding of fire safety, honoring nature, the elements & science of fire, how to build and light their own fire.
Our Spring focus will be on Shelter Building and topics we will cover are: knot tying, honoring nature & the elements as well as how to ensure protection in various conditions, short term and long term structure options and hands on practice.

Both trails will also be reinforcing the Through The Trees Root Values: Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Kind, Be Your Best Self, Be Patient, Be A Good Friend, Be Responsible, Be Mindful, Be Flexible, Be Ready and HAVE FUN!

We will come together at the end of each session for a Bon Fire Celebration to honor our Trail Blazers by presenting them with their well earned “Blaze”. The Winter sessions’ Bon Fire Celebration will be on March 21st.
