Wild Earth’s transformative nature immersion experiences cultivate character, confidence, passion and perseverance in today’s youth.
At Wild Earth, children & adults head into the woods and off the trails where they’re meeting plants and animals, learning wilderness skills, creating natural crafts, and building deep connections with friends and inspiring mentors.
Our programs are designed to remember and return to our natural human blueprint to form strong connections to self, each other and the Earth. At a time when our planet requires diligent and proactive care, Wild Earth’s programs foster gratitude, respect, and a renewed commitment to taking care of the Earth.
Registration has been filling up quickly for our 2020-2021 year-round youth programs. If you do encounter a waiting list, please sign up and we will contact you directly to enroll if a space opens up in the program or if another program becomes available!

🎆 2021 Camp Registration Launches February 1st AT NOON!
This summer, we are excited to hold the following camps: Kestrel, Raven, Kingfisher, and Ropes. To provide the safest programming possible, we have made the following decisions: Wild Earth will not run the typical two-week Screech Owl sessions, but we are hoping to meet 4-7 year olds in other ways. Raven and Ropes: Teen camps will be offered as two-week camps again this year. We will have two sessions of each camp. Registration opens Monday, February 1 at noon.

Please Choose ONE 2-Week Session per Participant in 2021
Due to COVID restrictions, Wild Earth has decreased camp capacity significantly this year. Our hope is to get as many children out in the woods as is safely possible and to meet this goal, we are limiting the amount of sessions individuals can sign up for. In addition, it is difficult to meet the wide range of needs when some participants are showing up for day one and others have already been at camp for 2-4 weeks prior. We are anticipating the children to have additional social and emotional needs, after experiencing all the traumas and challenges 2020 has presented. In an effort to make sure everyone is on similar footing, we are restricting enrollment to only one session so that everyone can start their session in a similar space to their peers.
