WE’RE TAKING IT OUTSIDE

Our Wonder In The Wilderness participants experience the wonder of the outdoors! We are a field-trip based nature-immersion program designed to enrich each child's learning by connecting them to the wilderness. 

WONDER IN THE WILDERNESS FALL 2019

This nature-immersion program is designed to enrich your child’s learning by connecting them to the wilderness. Our project-based, exploratory learning approach allows your child to shape their own curriculum with the help of a teacher who taps into their interests, curiosities, and understanding of the world.

Our daughter has had a blast getting outside with Wonder in the Wilderness this summer! She comes home brimming over with stories of the day’s adventures. We’re so grateful that she has the opportunity to explore special outdoor places in the company of thoughtful and caring staff

Benefits of this learning experience . . .

  • Children who play regularly in natural environments have more advanced motor skills, such as agility, balance, and coordination, and are also sick less often.

  • Your child will enjoy 12-27 hours of outdoor learning time each week (dependent on how many hours you register for).

  • Children whose schools offer outdoor classrooms or other forms of environmental education score higher on standardized tests.

  • We maintain a 1:5 teacher to student ratio to ensure your child receives the attention they deserve and safety is a priority (state ratio allows for a 1:12 ratio for children aged 4-6).

  • Children who are exposed to the natural world develop stronger awareness, reasoning, and observation skills.

Our 5-year-old son has had a fantastic experience with Wonder in the Wilderness this summer. He enthusiastically talks about the field trips he’s taken, the bugs and crawdads they caught, the rocks they climbed on, and the water they played in. But more than just a fun time, he’s learning a lot about plants, animals, and the environment. He comes home full of fun facts that he excitedly relates over dinner. And, his interest in the outdoors in general has increased, enjoying family hikes this summer, where he used to complain about them. Wonder in the Wilderness is a rich summertime experience.
