Our financial aid philosophy is take what you need and give what you can. We recognize that there are economic hardships, and we want to be accessible to all, so we ask that you pay whatever it is that you can.
The more you can pay, the more children we are able to extend aid to. Before you request financial aid we ask families to consider if there are family members or friends who might help provide a scholarship to your family for this program.

Wild Earth’s Mothers & Daughters Program strengthens and supports the mother-daughter bond through shared, empowering experiences in nature.
Together we will gather to experience the wonder of the woods in our first annual Mothers and Daughters Overnight!
Out on the land we will deepen our sense of belonging to the forest and to one another through engaging team building activities, thoughtful nature based crafts, exhilarating games, wilderness skills and intimate fireside circles.
We’ll cook over a fire, play games under moonlight and sleep beneath the stars — forging memories and bonds that will last a lifetime.
Mothers and daughters will have the chance to connect and strengthen your relationships with one another, while also enjoying space to be with your peers.
This program will cultivate the desire and ability to take care of self, one another, and Mother Earth. Mothers and Daughters will become Aunties and Sisters to one another and together form a community of diverse and strong women for our daughters to grow into.
Activities from past Wild Earth Mother Daughter programs include:
Wild edible treasure hunt, campfire cooking, blindfolded games and activities, plant dyes, shelter building, friction fire making, carving, candle making, story telling, salve making , spook making, basketry, and eco-art.
“One of my most memorable times was when we talked about the matrilineal histories of our families and heard about brave, strong women, grandmothers and great grandmothers, whose stories I was so appreciative that my pre-teen daughter was learning about and I could sense her girl power growing as we discussed challenging pasts that involved overcoming real obstacles in society as a female.”
“I know my daughter and I are better for having done this seasonal group together and I highly recommend the experience to all.”
“We were guided so expertly and gently to be together – in natural surroundings – as mothers and daughters and with a larger community of other mothers and daughters. We shared food, soaked up the mysteries and beauty of nature at different times of the day and in a variety of ways that I’d never have known how to create –playful games or blind folded games that led to trust and giggling; sweet opportunities for the daughters to show gratitude for the mamas through song, homemade food, even a creekside spa; and coming back from each gathering together singing about nature while soaking in the present moment of the moon and stars or the warmth of the summer sunshine.”
