The home range expands further as the KESTRELS take to the trail.  Students learn more hands on skills and expand their awareness skills through their senses even further.  We begin to explore "guild days" where they can pick a choice hands on or awareness skill to explore and focus on.  The KESTRELS also head off twice for 3 day wilderness camping adventures.
