ClearWater staff are experts in setting up a space for teenagers to explore their capacity to develop a personal relationship with the natural world, and to co-create programs that have meaning for them. On the road to this end we will be training the next generation of foresters, foragers, growers and outdoor educators, to use their senses, work with hand tools and natural materials and, to develop confidence, self-awareness, collaboration, leadership and love of place.
Spoon Carving Club

Practice basic carving techniques and the safe use of hand tools including saws, drawknives and hand drills. You will also have the opportunity to learn the basics of green woodworking, from taking down trees in a safe group setting to processing and making a spoon.

Leaders in Training
Leaders in Training will develop hands-on and leadership skills and the self confidence to become outdoor educators who connect children to nature and cultivate an appreciation for the outdoors. This training will encourage youth to be their authentic selves and let their unique passions and skills shine and let that be the guide to engage with younger camp children in the natural world. This program is ideal for youth who have previously attended Clearwater Farm summer camp and who want to progress toward a leadership role within the camp environment; but will consider outside candidates with relevant experience.
