Our popular Foxwalk Forest School for children aged 5 – 7 is now open for a week in the summer!

Foxwalk is a program about building and fostering relationships.  It’s by creating connections to each other and the natural world that our curiosity is stirred and learning flows. Our days are filled with play, exploration, stories, wilderness skills and fun…lots of fun! We are guided by the combined passions of the children and staff, the animals and weather, and the unique magic that each day has to offer.

If you could turn into a bird and follow your child at Foxwalk, you might find them:

  • Playing nature awareness games
  • Engaging in imaginative free play
  • Building fairy houses
  • Learning many different kinds of wilderness crafts, skills, stories and songs.
  • Broadening their relationship with the natural world


Students are guided by longtime VWS instructor Bob Etzweiler, with 17 years of experience sharing the natural world with children and guiding groups in the outdoors, along with other experienced Vermont Wilderness School staff. We maintain a ratio of at least one instructor per six children.

Bob has always loved being outdoors. He loves hunting, tanning hides, crafting, primitive cooking, tracking, and wandering. Since 2007 Bob has been leading programs for Vermont Wilderness School, and he’s now beloved by hundreds of the kids and adults who’ve gotten to share his infectious enthusiasm, extensive knowledge, and neverending stream of bad jokes.
