Outdoor School (Ages 4 to 13)

Weekend Wanderers

We know there’s a lot going on during the week. That’s why we offer kids the chance to adventure out on weekends! Once a month, we explore forgotten areas of the forest, sing songs by the fire, play games that use all our senses, and more. By spending the entire day outside over three seasons, kids learn how to creatively solve problems and make the most of any situation.

In light of Covid-19, we’re taking additional measures to ensure the health and safety of participants and staff. Please review this important information to learn more.

2020/21 Season Details:

This is a year round program with 9 sessions. Sessions occur on a monthly basis and run on the following dates (Sat/Sun): October 17/18, November 14/15, December 5/6, January 16/17, February 6/7, March 6/7, April 10/11, May 1/2, June 5/6

Participants typically register for one session per month (see session options below). We ask that Coyote Pups (ages 4-6) only register for one session (morning or afternoon).

*Changes to program timing* Full-day programs can be challenging for young ones under the best of circumstances, especially during winter. New Covid-19 health procedures, such as physical distancing, restrict the amount of hands-on support our instructors can offer participants. Therefore, we feel it necessary to limit our time with 4-6yo to half day sessions. The timing of full-day programs for 7-9yo and 10-13yo have been adjusted to better align with the younger groups.

*NEW LOCATION* Due to ongoing construction at our normal Taylor Creek Park meeting location, we’re happy to announce that we’ll be meeting at Stan Wadlow Park instead! Stan Wadlow is a nearby connected park within the greater Taylor Creek Park system. We’ll be able to park right next to our meeting spot and explore a new area! We hope this change makes things easier for families.

You can check if spots are available at any time by heading over to our registration site (click "Register" below). If a program is full, we encourage you to sign up to waitlists! We typically see some turnover throughout the year and we’d love to let you know if a spot opens up.
