Through creative play and exploration, participants ages 6 to 13 work together in small groups, gaining nature awareness and knowledge of plants, mammals, birds, tracking and survival. Our instructors guide students into experiences that nurture their connection to the earth and allow them to feel at home in the natural world. 

Our educational philosophy focuses on:

  • Providing fun, hands-on opportunities for children to get outside and learn about the natural world
  • Variety through weekly themes
  • Adaptability so that the programs match the energy of the group during a particular session
  • Mentoring delivered by instructors with experience working with children in this age group
  • Using Coyote Mentoring, a widely-respected educational philosophy developed at the Wilderness Awareness School, to encourage creative thinking rather than providing answers, help students develop problem-solving skills and self-sufficiency, and encourage a much deeper level of learning.

Our instructional staff includes:

  • Experienced instructors
  • Apprentices who offer additional instructor support
  • A targeted 1 to 10 adult to student ratio
  • Staff trained as Coyote Mentors
  • Compassionate educators who encourage each child's respect for self, others and nature
  • Experienced Wilderness First Aid and CPR certified professionals
