Forest School (British model)
La Tribu is a multilingual project (English, Spanish and Valenciano), flexible and with a low participant-guide ratio. Following the British Forest School model, our main objective is to support participants in achieving personal growth through a real connection with nature. In La Tribu, we work emotional intelligence from a holistic perspective: social skills, self regulation, self awareness, empathy and self motivation. Our programmes are dynamic as they adapt to the collective and individual needs of participants as the programme progresses. Activities include free play, den building, orienteering, art, wood carving, tree climbing, team games… As the group becomes more confident and skillful, we introduce the use of tools and activities that require less direction. This way the the group moves towards an increasingly democratic self-management and also very importantly, towards child-led risk management. La Tribu is based in an area declared of outstanding natural beauty and lacks infrastructure other than what participants build themselves because simplicity is fundamental for a reconnection with nature, with ourselves and with those around us. We offer Forest School programmes for families, homeschoolers, schools and adults as well as different workshops.
