WildWise School does not follow popular holiday and break schedules. We are an indigenous and nature based spirit led program and our holiday and break schedule orients to those practices. Please see our School Calendar available in the drop down menu for when our holiday and seasonal break dates are.
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.
In an outdoor classroom of tall trees, grassy fields, and sandy beaches, learning becomes an adventure by stimulating a child’s senses, engaging both their mind and body. Children are innately curious, and our qualified Mentors help children to trust that they are also intelligent and capable people, so that they may become responsible members of their community. We help them to push their edges and take appropriate risks in a safe and caring environment, building confidence and awareness.
We play in nature as we harvest and forage wild foods, make our own crafts, study Natural History and Life Sciences, and encourage the imagination, all the while fostering skills that last a lifetime.
