About the event

The La Mesa Homeschool Collective is so excited to partner with Martin Ferreira (Thrive With Martin) to offer this 5 day outdoor course where kids will learn the following skills to inspire self-reliance: first aid, land navigation (topographical maps, compass use), basic gardening, introduction to foraging, animal husbandry, knot tying, and fishing.

DATES (May not sign up for individual days): Four Thursdays in September: Sept 8, 15, 22, and 29 from 9am to 1pm in Jamul, with a 5th day on Friday September 30th from 6am - anytime (all day if you'd like!) at El Capitan Lake in Lakeside, where the kids will fish and put their new skills to use (Families are welcome! I know 6am is early, but it is SO worth it! The fish are biting before it gets hot and it's beautiful out there. I brought my 4 year old and he had a blast!).

COST: $200 for the whole course, which includes a fishing pole and all materials for the class. Also, great news- he is a vendor for several charters (I believe Freedom Academy, Pacific Coast Academy, Julian Manzanita, but check with your charter: Thrive With Martin is his vendor name)

AGE:  Ideal age is 6+.  My 9 year old was the youngest kid at his Self-Reliance summer camp; the oldest was 16; Martin said mature 6 years old could attend. The course is designed to have the kids learn to do everything themselves (hence "self-reliance").  Parents are welcome to stay or drop off.

SIGN UP DETAILS: Deadline to register is August 26th. We need a minimum of 10 students to make this course happen, and there is a maximum of 20. Here is a link to the sign up page.
