School Year Teen Programs

Nature Sages

Nature Sages 

Sienna Ranch’s Nature Sages Teen Program is designed to deepen each student’s connection with nature while building an individual sense of self and purpose. Through hands-on creative projects we will build skills related to survival, nature connection, homesteading, and ancient arts. By fostering an awareness of the outside world, we will build connections to our inner experience through personal reflection and group activities. Nature Sages will have the opportunity to grow as leaders as they work together as a team.   Hiking, team building activities, and animal interactions/care will be regular aspects of the program as well. Each session has a theme and all activities align with seasonal and ecological changes on the ranch and our surrounding natural landscape. Nature Sages is open to all levels of experience. Whether you have grown up at Sienna Ranch or you are joining us for the very first time- everyone is welcome!Students in the program are:

  • Able to hike minimum two miles
  • Able to sit and participate in group discussions
  • Able to focus on a project for up to an hour
