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.
