Alone in the forest
Alone in the forest

As an adult, learning basic survival skils, wild edibles, medicinal plants and crafts enriches your life, provides greater appreciation of our world and enhances your self-confidence.

As a parent, learning wilderness skills increases your ability to feel safe in the forest. Understanding the natural world enhances your ability to teach your children and releases you to allow your children to explore.

Camp Forest is linking with Adam Stone's private guiding for adult opportunities.  Please email,  earthbreathes@gmail.com or  message his facebook page at  STONE's GUIDING

In addition to the following opportunities, Adam Stone is a registered Maine Guide and will take you or your group exploring in Maine or teaching at Camp Forest. He also offers uinique experreinces in Peru.
