So much of the education that takes place at
Synergia and Finding the Good is experiential. Building and creating a
structure, a film, a trail, a wall, a meal, or a book is one of the most
valuable ways to learn. One gathers and makes all the parts, and from the
parts, crafts a “whole”.
Two sessions are offered:
Mountains and Rivers, Shelter and Food
Ages 15 and up
Location: Synergia Learning Ventures, Yuba Watershed, Sierra Nevada
This program is, in part, ideal for teens who are considering a semester
with Finding the Good and would like to get a sense for it before committing.
This program is for teens who want to engage – to build, to cook, to work
together toward a common goal. Projects include: building a wood-fired oven for
pizza and bread; finishing Cabin #3 by milling lumber doing interior work;
food preservation and more. The adventure portions include ropes course and
exploring the nearby Yuba River. The wilderness portion is a 5-day high Sierra
backpacking trip at the end of the session.
