More ways to connect with nature with WYP.

Throughout the year we offer opportunities to connect, play outdoors, and learn more about WYP. Our spring Connection Luncheon is a chance to hear from our team. Spring also brings weekend campouts. Summer offers full moon kayak outings.

"I appreciate each of you and your passion for sharing your love of the wilderness with this new generation. They are lucky to be influenced by you. I do know my daughter will hold dear for her entire life her WYP experiences. I also know her WYP experiences have shaped her for good. My daughter is in love with the wilderness!"
