      Hi Kathy. The weekend course is normally 210.00, but we have a sliding scale, work -study, and are part of a Time Bank (Central Maine Time Bank) if that helps. Each experience is full immersion, each designed to work your physical senses and learn strategies for gaining deeper understanding of the landscape. Because of the compression of time, the weekend course covers multi-sensory awareness, understanding bird language, reading the forested landscape, and lost proofing (aidless navigation) and seasonally available awareness skills development. The five day goes much deeper in to all of these skill sets and incorporates more intuitive development. On the low end of the sliding scale it’s $520.00. I hope this helps!
