Outdoor school isn’t just for youth! Adults and families learn new skills, develop confidence in the woods, make new friends. Our classes and workshops help students discover their passions and become students of nature.
We provide dynamic experiences for children and adults to learn valuable life skills, build strength of character, and value diversity of culture. WildWise is a place to become the hero within, and live the adventure!
The curriculum for every program at WildWise School is carefully crafted to ensure participants learn practical life skills combined with real academic knowledge that will open their heats, enrich their souls, and propel them into a future of intelligent and grounded nature connection.
Our experienced and certified staff meets each participant where they are in their individual physical and emotional development, assisting them to forge a path forward to succeed not just in our programs, but in their lives now and into the future as individuals and members of the larger community.
|WildWise is divided into six interconnected guilds of study. Each guild holds a virtue within the school, and the respective guild is represented in the Mark of WildWise.|
Individual guilds hold the responsibility of serving and protecting their realm through service work in their communities. Students are encouraged to pick a primary Guild of focus, but are free to participate in any Guild they wish, and earn Marks of Achievement in any of the core skills each offers.
