Spend an amazing series of Fridays with Northwood and enrich your child’s education with deep nature connection and personal mentoring as part of community-based regenerative culture. In this multi-age, multi-dimensional learning circle, we learn wilderness, naturalist, science, and physical skills as well as healthy and empowering community practices that will bring out the best in everyone. Some students take Fridays off of school to attend Village Day as an educational supplement and we are happy to work with your family and school to make it possible if it seems like a good fit.


9 Week Spring Session: Begins March 2nd

Classes run Fridays from 9am – 3pm in Belmont, Maine and are open to youth ages 5 – 17.

Northwood is committed to making our programs more accessible and we are willing to work with families to ensure their children can participate. Some families pay the low end of the sliding scale and do barter or trade to offset costs. We will work with each family to pay what they can afford, with the understanding that alternative economic approaches support diversity and strength in our community.
