At MHA we believe that animal husbandry, primitive survival skills, and outdoor knowledge are important pieces of education. Connecting with nature benefits teens' and tweens' mental health, anxiety, confidence levels, and personal relationships. Bushcraft Kid™'s days are incorporated into our Middle School and High School curriculum. We devote one FULL day a week outdoors in our Middle School curriculum and multi-day camping trips in our High School curriculum.

 

If you don't have a local Bushcraft Kid™ program in your area we have remote plans for your student. Please discuss these options with your intake coordinator. If you are interested in starting a Bushcraft Kid™ program in your area, please reach out.  

This year we are happy to announce that we are opening up our Bushcraft Kid™ days to all families!! Click on your campus below.

"Exposure to nature can reduce children's stress levels by as much as 28 percent and a 20-minute walk in nature can help kids with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD concentrate better."

We need to unplug, step away, and reconnect with nature. Far too many educational institutions have cut outdoor education from their budgets. We are here to bring it back. 

Giving tweens and teens the skills, confidence, connection, and exposure to the outdoors provides mental benefits and life self-sufficiency skills.
