At MHA we believe that animal husbandry, primitive survival skills, and outdoor knowledge are important pieces of education. We devote two days a week to ensuring our students get outside, and learn through experience.
"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.
