By experiencing seasonal transitions outdoors, children have the opportunity
to cultivate a heightened awareness of the subtleties of nature. They direct their
own learning by investigating curiosity and ultimately can experience a deep sense
of place. These opportunities for growth provide a foundation for physical, emotional,
and social intelligence that lasts a lifetime.



Wilderness Youth Project is a place where young children connect with nature through
outdoor play, curiosity and awareness. Developmentally appropriate routines
include gratitude circles, games, and songs— all mirroring the patterns of surrounding nature. 


Chickadees (1 day per week)

Wilderness Youth Project - Bumblebees
