This class is tailored for 11-to-13-year-olds of all genders who are interested in experiencing the outdoors. Together, we will increase our knowledge of the natural world and its many inhabitants. Listening, communicating, and building self-sufficiency are some of the themes of this class, amongst our hikes, plant walks, and hands-on activities.
Climbing trees, finding animal tracks, building a shelter, starting a fire without matches, and making tools, toys, and first aid supplies from plants are just some of the many activities in store for Wild Kids.
This 8-week class series is being offered every Tuesday afternoon beginning September 29th, with the final class on November 17th. Wild Kids Homeschooler Adventure Class runs from 12:00-2:00pm, meeting at the South Street Gate to the Arnold Arboretum. There is a 6 child maximum for this class time, at which point a second 2:30-4:30pm class will be offered. The cost is $175.
