There are two simple ways to reserve a spot in a class:

1. Email with your name, phone number and, for overnight classes, any food requirements*. You will receive an invoice via email that allows you to pay with PayPal or a credit card. Details about the class location and an equipment list will then be sent to you.

2. Mail a check or money order made out to Earth Skills to the following address. Include your name, address, phone, email and for overnight classes any food requirements.*

For vegan, non-dairy, non-gluten & some other diets we may ask you to bring some of your own food.


For weekend or longer classes, you must notify us at least 7 days in advance to receive full credit for another class, or a 75% refund. If you cancel later than that, you risk loss of your enrollment fee unless your space can be filled from a wait list. For one-day classes, you must notify us at least 4 days prior to the class to receive credit for a class or a 75% refund. If you cancel later than that, you risk loss of your enrollment fee unless your space can be filled from a wait list.

Class Eligibility

Our classes are designed for adults and children 12 years and older. (Exception: the Wilderness Skills class is open to 14 years and above.) We put considerable time and effort into the content and pace of the curriculum, knowing that for younger children and families, classes must be structured differently. Please do not ask us to make an exception to admit your younger child; we must say no in fairness to other parents who have not asked for an exception.

In addition, a group of four or more enrolling at the same time in a regularly scheduled class can qualify for a 15% discount.
