What Is A Tracker?

A tracker trails more than fox and deer. They find connections wherever they go.
The kids and staff who call themselves Trackers have a code to adventure by.

Pay Attention
A Tracker is always aware of their surroundings.
Teach kids to see the entire picture, looking for details both great and small.

Be Truly Helpful
A Tracker serves their community, nature, and generations beyond them.
Guide kids to be TRULY helpful, becoming stewards for nature and their community.

Appreciate
A Tracker seeks out a Grand New Adventure everyday.
Mentor kids get to bring awe and adventure back into their lives.

Adapt
A Tracker is constantly curious: always learning and adapting.
Quest with kids to look for new pieces in the Puzzle That's Never Finished.
