Need Financial Aid? Click here.

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.

While nobody has ever been turned away for lack of funds, our ability to accommodate financial aid requests rests on the strength of our program enrollment and the generosity of the individuals, businesses and foundations that partner with Wild Earth to make financial aid possible.

We're in this together! Many of us are stretching ourselves to make sure that cost doesn't get in the way of anyone playing, exploring and learning in nature.

Kestrel: 3 Autumn Sundays

This fall, we gather in the forest to play games, tell stories around the fire, craft, track, build and so much more!

We warmly welcome you to Kestrel: Autumn Discovery. Together, we will safely explore the elements and build lasting friendships with each other and the land as we nurture the village the children have enriched each summer at camp.

Children walk away from Kestrel feeling at home in nature and at home in themselves. Our staff is filled with seasoned teachers and naturalists who meet children where they are and help them to find harmony and joy both in the group and in the forest.

Each day begins with a morning circle where thanksgiving, songs and silly movement games bring us further into our bodies. The days are filled with nature-based games that expand our awareness, storytelling from skilled instructors and visiting elders, songs inspired by nature’s beauty, stream wanders that cool us down, exploring the forest and the Shawangunk Ridge, sculpting clay from the stream banks, looking for mysteries amongst logs and rocks, building forts and shelters in the leaves, wandering the caves and boulders. At the end of the day, with leaf and flower crowns on our heads, our faces painted and smiles on our faces, we’ll return, energized from a day in the woods!

Kestrel is where your child will:

  • Play and explore the beautiful outdoors.
  • Experience and practice a variety of wilderness skills and native technology.
  • Practice awareness, quiet-mind, animal forms, curiosity, exploration, telling the story of the day, and gratitude.
  • Face personal and group challenges tailored to build awareness, self-confidence, and group unity.

Our Kestrel instructors are experts in guiding children to safely and freely move in the direction of their own curiosity.
