Homeschool Days


Join Wonder in the Wild for a day of nature play and hands-on environmental education designed for homeschool families!

Explorers ages 5+ will:

  • Spend time playing in our Village, creating art, using tools to explore nature, building obstacle courses, experimenting in the mud kitchen, and diving into our weekly nature topic in our reading corner

  • Hike to the woods and/or venture to the beach for guided environmental education activities, focusing on what is happening in nature around us

  • Practice outdoor skills such as composting, environmental field research, fire building and tending, cooking, shelter building, orienteering, and Leave No Trace ethics


School Year 2023-24
