Welcome to the new home of the Jack Mountain Bushcraft Folk School. We’re based in the lakes region of New Hampshire and offer programs in outdoor skills, ecology and nature lore, crafting and building traditional outdoor gear, sustainability and other skills for a simple, handmade life. Unlike our field school programs, camping is not a required part of the experience.
Programs are focused on remembering our connection with the natural world. We use the term remember in two ways. First, it is to recall something that has been forgotten. Second, it is the opposite of dismember – building a connection to a part of the human experience that has been severed. Our goal is to empower people to be more confident, competent and at home in the natural world.
Most of our folk school programs take place near Wolfeboro, New Hampshire.
We’re reorganizing our house on the web and will be for a bit. For more information, please check out our field school site at JackMtn.com while we get things organized around here.
