Nature Quest is a five day a week program during the school year from 8:30 to 1:30. WildWise NatureQuest is a youth naturalist and bushcraft program. Kids explore the forests of Kitsap County Parks or engage in Crofter skills and Archery at the WildWise Campus in Kingston. NatureQuest fosters a child’s intimate connection with the natural world while developing personal and social skills among peers and mentors, guiding them along their journey as a WildChild. Integrating EduLARPing through StoryQuests℠, WildWise holds space for a child’s natural sense of wonder to guide naturalist, bushcraft, and crofter skills.
