Family at Laughing Coyote

Our workshops are designed for adult students; many folks ask us if their teen/child can participate with assistance. The answer is “yes” for most courses, if you believe your child is capable of having a positive learning experience, please check with our Program Coordinator to know which courses are appropriate for children to attend. The child and parent working together will pay the equivalent of one participant, and take home the project of one participant.

Our passion for primitive skills extends beyond the “hard skills” or arts and crafts, but looks to envelop every aspect of living. To this end, families, couples, elders and single adult are integral to our community. We believe that these skills are transformative for adults, but imagine what it would be like to grow up where friction fire was “normal”. Imagine the tracks of animals and the myriad unfoldings of edible plants were imbedded deep within your psyche. Raising a culture of children who can observe adults in the practice of authentic work, to play with their peers outside, and marvel and find comfort in the skills our ancestors practiced for millennia is essential to our vision. Children and families are invite to attend all Laughing Coyote courses, with only a couple of exceptions. However, parents must parent, this is not a free-for-all, and some workshops are not conducive to children’s direct participation, but they are welcome to come and play.

Camping

For weekend workshops, participants are invited to camp on site if they would like. You will need to be completely self-sufficient with food and shelter, fires will only be permitted if conditions are favorable. We do have bathrooms and potable water available. Our site is a working farm, where we are also raising young children, please be respectful with noise, attitude and language. We ask that you refrain from using alcohol and recreational drugs while on our property. No dogs allowed.

 

 

 

 

Cancellation Policy

Laughing Coyote Project welcomes students who are motivated to learn wilderness and nature education skills, are healthy and are socially responsible. We will deny admission to anyone we believe to be unable to meet the safety demands of our courses. We will expel any student who exhibits behavior that is unsafe or disrupts from the educational mission of a course. If a student is expelled, there will be no refund.

Laughing Coyote Project cancellation/credit and transfer policies are based on our investment in staff, course planning, as well as food and equipment purchases before your course. We cannot recover our expenses if you cancel. Short-notice cancellations often prevent others from attending.

If you cancel or leave a program for any reason:
1) 15 or more days prior to the course starting date; you are entitled to a full refund, minus the nonrefundable deposit.
2) Between 8 and 14 days prior to the course starting date, Laughing Coyote Project will retain 50 percent of the tuition.
3) Fewer than 8 days prior to the course starting date and once the course has begun, there will be no refunds.

 

Although we rarely need to do so, we reserve the right to cancel a course or change a course duration, tuition or location.
