Click to Flip Through the 2014 Summer Program Catalog

The Summer Program, which runs from May through October, is The Clearing's oldest and the one that most closely resembles Jensen's original folk school vision. The mainstay of the Summer Program is week-long classes, with 25 to 35 students and instructors living at The Clearing, eating family-style meals and renewing their spirit through close contact with the native landscape. The Clearing experience is made up of many special components. The classes, sense of community, forests, meadows, water, sunsets, home-cooked meals, traditions and history all blend to create a wonderful place to learn, relax, reflect and make new friends.



So you're excited about next years' Summer Program are you? The 2015 Summer Program schedule is not finished yet, but below is preview of next year's schedule. Complete class details will be posted in early January.
