2016 Fall Schedule
At Home in the Woods- ages 8-12
||Make yourself at home in the woods! Join in for 5 weeks of adventure and challenge as we find wild foods, build a natural shelter that could keep you warm through an unplanned cold fall night in the woods, practice the skills of lost-proofing so you can always find your way home, and learn to build a safe fire in 5 minutes, no matter what. We’ll practice using our eyes like an owl, our ears like a deer and our nose like a bear so we’ll know our woodland home as well as the animals do.
Five Sundays – 9/18, 9/25, 10/16, 10/23, 10/30 12:00 – 4:00 PM
Limited to 12 children ages 8-12
Archery- grades 7 - 12

Geocaching- ages 8 through adult
| Come learn the joy of geocaching! Geocaching started 15 years ago, when the US Government made the Global Positioning System (GPS) available to the general public. Within one day someone used the technology to hide a small cache and post those coordinates online - 3 days later it had been found twice! Right now there are over 2.5 million geocaches and 6 million geocachers worldwide. In this course, we will explore the various tools of geocaching while searching the grounds of Heldeberg Workshop on a plethora of adventures seeking out caches….from nanos to multis.
Dates/Times: 9/18 & 10/30, 12pm - 3pm
Ages 8 through adult
Macrophotography - ages 12 through adult
| Whether it's a photograph of an insect's wing, a frog's eye, or the veins in a leaf… study photography from the macro perspective (really really up close), “focusing” on the use of bokeh (intentional blur), angle, light, subject stalking, equipment and technique. Students will roam the grounds of Heldeberg Workshop shooting lots of different subjects (flora, fauna, rock, face, object, background and misc). We’ll also talk about crop, the theory of thirds, critique and depth of field.
If they have one, students should bring a digital camera capable of macro photos. This can be a DSLR with a macro lens, extensions tubes or step lens or even a smart phone capable of macro. The Workshop has cameras if needed.
