General Information

Classes are taught by Tim Corcoran with the assistance of guest instructors and apprentices.

Classes are open to all people ages 10 and up. Apply early to insure enrollment. Some younger students, and families are welcome; call for specifics. We offer services to the general public without discrimination under a special use permit on the Klamath, Siskiyou and Shasta National Forest. We also offer custom courses. Call us with your specific needs.

Students will need to supply their own camping gear. A list of necessary equipment will be provided upon enrollment. We encourage carpooling and will assist in arrangements whenever possible.

Students may be able to receive high school/college credit for taking Headwaters classes. Many Headwaters students have been able to work with their school counselors to put their hours at Headwaters towards their academic school credit.

Please call us at (530) 938-1304 if you have any questions.

We make every effort to keep our class sizes small to insure personal attention for every student. Because of this we require a non-refundable $300 deposit to reserve a space in a class. For Plant and Bow and Arrow Classes, please pay full amount. We accept credit cards (Visa and Mastercard only), though do not accept online payments.


A 10% early enrollment discount is available for tuition paid in full 90 days prior to the first day of class.

Refund Policy

All fees will be refunded in full if we receive your written request at least 90 days prior to the first day of class. Any cancellations received with less than 90 days notice will be refunded less your $300 deposit.

Credit Card Payments

We will gladly accept payment by credit card, though only 14 or fewer days before the start date of the class.
Payments, including deposits made prior to this period, must be paid by check or cash.
