My child adored the instructors at the Wilderness School. The camp gave him the
opportunity to get dirty and learn about nature freely with friends. I appreciated the attentiveness
and love that the instructors showed my camper. I am looking forward to sending him back next
year!

-Mother of 5 year old camper

This program should be integrated into public school K-12. What wilderness awareness
school is teaching is essential to humanity and our ability to build and sustain respectful
community into adulthood.

-Mother of 5 year old camper

Wilderness Awareness Camp was one of the most important and educational experiences
of my daughter's life. After one week she gained self-confidence and a deeper sense of wonder
for the world around her.

-Ethan Bryson (Father of 6 year old camper)

Our son did much more than hike the park - he began to notice nature more deeply,
marveling at the whirls in tree bark and the patterns in a spider web.

-Mary L. (Mother of 4.5 year old camper)
