What OUR parents say

"We appreciate everything WYP has done for our own children, as well as the community at large. The WYP staff are unmatched in their professionalism, expertise, outdoor safety skills, and genuine understanding of how to authentically open up the world of nature to children of all ages."

Bridget Lewin

UCSB Instructor

"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!"

McKenna Spaulding
