Hear from some of our satisfied Parents:

Go to a Fishback Class (as our kids call it) and you’ll see youngsters of all ages learning authentic Native American lore: playing stalking games, identifying edible plants, or sitting around a fire crafting bone knives, wooden utensils, drums, bows, rattles, and deerskin pouches. His groups have made debris huts, teepees, and a dugout canoe. John’s ability to teach, play, and instill a sense of reverence and stewardship toward the earth have had an enormous impact on our two kids, and they keep going back. - Barbara Johnson -

I can't resist adding to the accolades being showered upon the John Fishback Nature Programs. My son, now 13, has been lucky enough to participate in many of John's programs since he was 8. I've never found a child drawn to nature that didn't think John was the greatest. He knows and understands and transfers his enthusiasm for nature like no one I have ever seen. He is especially familiar with our geographic area. I think he spends more time in nature than indoors, and probably has for most of his life. Not only does he transfer information and knowledge about the flora and fauna, the kids absolutely inhale a respect and sense of responsibility about the earth and care for it at the same time.Cynthia Kamman

The kids came home from camp exhausted and fell asleep early every night. All of the kids respect John, and listen to him. John takes safety seriously and the kids follow his safety rules. - Lisa Cox-
