Forest Tails is a new series for youth ages 11-16. There are 3 parts to this outdoor education course; “Briar Rose” is just for girls and young women coming of age and will focus on medicinal plant knowledge and women mysteries. “Cinder-Ella” and “Riding Hood” are co-ed and we will be taking things to the next level with more primitive skills training, fire starting, advanced bush craft and wildcrafting techniques, and so much more! We are so excited about these amazing classes- come join us!!
We are located in the beautiful Slocan Valley on an acreage just steps from Airy Creek. Our head office/ retreat centre is located in a unique hand crafted straw bale timber frame house. Our sweat lodge is also located onsite. There are two bed and breakfast rooms available for rent year round- call 250-226-6702 to inquire about an overnight stay with us! To find us: We are located at 4615 Passmore Upper Rd.in the Slocan Valley. Follow Highway 6 towards Nakusp/Winlaw from the Junction. Go past the Slocan Park Co-op and turn left onto Passmore Upper Rd. Cross the silver bridge and continue straight (the road turns to gravel) to the end of the road where you will see a Y intersection. The left turns into a logging road so keep right where you see a “No Through Road” sign and follow down the windy road (there are a few blind corners so use your horn to let oncoming traffic know you’re coming!) the road will come to a straight stretch and about 1.5 km along you will see a large straw bale- timber frame house with a green roof and large reflective numbers on the left. We are 4.5 km from the highway. You are here!
