Run Wild After School (Ages 6-13)


Run Wild is our after school program where we use games, stories, wilderness skills, naturalist studies and adventures to help foster deep and lifelong relationships between kids and nature while having a ton of fun. Participants may not realize they are learning important life skills such as:

  • Teamwork
  • Physical fitness and healthy living
  • Wildlife tracking
  • Plant identification and uses – especially learning the hazardous ones
  • Environmental stewardship
  • Introduction to wilderness skills
  • Self confidence
  • Creativity and imaginative thinking
  • Problem-solving
  • Respect for self, each other and nature

This is a year-round program running from October – June. Program days and times are consistent week-by-week for each participant.
