Welcome to the Oak Rose
Raising a Generation of Earth Stewards
About Our Forest School
The Oak Rose Forest School provides a magical learning environment that has helped countless students experience awe, joy, wonder, connection and love. Founded in 2021, our Forest School program is located in Callicoon and honors the land spirits, indigenous cultures, and its original stewards, the Lenni Lenape tribe & clans. We’re extremely grateful to be surrounded by such beauty and nourishment for the soul, and especially to our partner, The Sanctuary for providing us this space to grow and flourish. Our students and staff are always eager to learn, create and play together. We offer a multitude of programs for children and families to explore and connect in a natural setting. Give us a call to find out more about how we can support your child and get involved.
“Passion is lifted from the earth itself by the muddy hands of the young; it travels along grass-stained sleeves to the heart. If we are going to save environmentalism and the environment, we must also save an endangered indicator species: the child in nature.”
"Ms Caitlyn has brought to Sullivan County a degree of learning that is absent in our rural area. Having worked in our local public school for 31 years, I wish that more of the ideas and concepts shared by Ms. Caitlyn and her Wizard School could be incorporated in our public schools. I have experienced firsthand the compassion, ingenuity, and patience Ms. Caitlyn has not only shown to my granddaughter, but to all the school children. The range of personalities, spectrum of needs is all received with an open heart. Ms. Caitlyn always takes the time to share funny stories, highlights, and the challenges of the day with the parents. Ms. Caitlyn allows the children to connect with their emotions, express their thoughts, all while experiencing the beauty of nature. "
