We also offer internships! Interns spend a minimum of one month living at Earth Knack, and we offer them a chance to live as primitive a lifestyle as they wish: living outside, cooking on a fire, hunting and gathering most of our food, dwelling in primitive shelters, relying on stone tools, making and wearing beautiful buckskin clothing, and working and playing hard in an electronics-free zone. Tuition covers hearty wild food dinners, 6 days per week of instruction, and all classes and events held at the school site. To learn more about interning at Earth Knack see

Have a beautiful Summer! We hope to see you out our way in the Rocky Mountains.
