BEAR Kids

Deep Nature Connection Mentoring for Youth ages 8 to 14

BEAR Kids facilitates the realization of every child’s unique gifts while practicing core routines for connecting with nature.  Mentors help children to orient with caring adults who are responsible for them rather than their peers.

“We have lost sight of nature’s role in the whole process of maturation and growing up. Parents and nature are a team. And nature can’t go on without the parental role of being able to foster individuality and viability unless the attachment needs are fully met.”

Gordon Neufeld, PHd

Becoming a deep nature connection mentor is a wonderful gift of the human journey.  It starts with the discovery that true service stems from our own connection with Nature.  BEAR kids mentors embody this service by modelling deep nature connection in their own lives.   

Helping a child gain exposure to one of his early curiosities. Rock Climbing!

Mentoring repairs and nurtures culture.  It was nearly forgotten as a cultural tool for fostering healthy intergenerational relationships in a community.  By connecting with others in the context of mentoring our best selves are called to the surface, helping us choose our finest thoughts, words and actions. 

Join us on the mentor’s journey and become part of an intergenerational village of attachment in your own community.
