   1. Wilderness Explorers

 Ages 7-14

MONDAYS  9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

The Wilderness Explorers spend the entire day outdoors exploring and immersing themselves in nature. Barring extreme weather, we will learn about nature, eat, play, "water and fertilize" trees, and carry everything they need for the day in their backpacks - rain, snow, and sun.

Learners will complete challenges, hike, develop outdoor & survival skills, work together, build shelters, and become connected to our natural world and each other. 

Our experienced outdoor Guides use observation and documentation to plan outdoor programs that encourage active exploration, inquiry, independence, kindness & character building, choice, critical thinking & problem solving, wonder, and discovery. Our days are loosely structured to allow space for the learners' curiosity and interest to lead.

Your child will explore as a group as well as have room to independently interact with our wonderful natural environment, alongside Guides who have a love for the outdoors that is highlighted by conservation and stewardship minded practices.

   2. Forest Kindergarten

Ages 4-6

TUESDAYS  9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Our Forest Kindergarten half day program offers an introduction of the natural world to young learners.  This may be the first experience for some children being in nature away from their parents and our experienced Guides have a deep respect for this.  

Our Guides have created a program that will both nuture and challenge these young explorers. They will learn about nature, eat, play, "water and fertilize" trees, and carry everything they need for the day in their backpacks - rain, snow, and sun.

Our days are loosely structured to allow space for the learners' curiosity and interest to lead. They will learn to work together, hike, develop a love & respect for nature, and complete challenges.
