Northwoods Forest School


Our Student-to-Guide ratio is considered for instruction, safety and professionalism. 

Our class is divided into Plane 2 students and Plane 3 students. We have two lead Guides and two assistant Guides, so there will always be ample supervision and support for the students. We also have volunteers that help out when we have bigger events, such as our yearly fundraising sale. 

All of our Guides, full-time/part-time,  have thorough background checks, basic first aid, are nature-based teaching certified and have a commitment to Northwoods Policies and core values. Our full-time Guides are also certified nature-based teachers but also have Wilderness &/or Basic First Aid Certifications, as well as additional training and certifications in areas that benefit forest school education. Our volunteers are thoroughly-reviewed school families and pass background checks as well, we are very diligent in making sure your child is offered a safe and secure atmosphere as best as we can!
