Imagine your child coming home and telling you that they want to drop everything and go live in the wild and be one with the earth-after one day!
Imagine that your kids were so into commercial types of sedentary entertainment, they cried when you first told them about going to this place, but then after three days asked to do it ALL summer long!
Yup, those were my daughters. That was our experience at Wild Earth. Specifically, they attended a 3 day outdoor “Spring Break” program. They learned how to build a fire, they whittled wood, did cart wheels through spider webs they created from rope, played like ninjas, made face paint with clay and more!
Wild Earth provides nature based learning for kids of all ages, including family camps. They have one day programs, and weekly summer sessions. This is a not to be missed experience. It is (sadly) like no other, totally grounding and exciting all at once. Wild Earth is a Hudson Valley nonprofit dedicated to nature connection for all ages.
