EverWild engages and mentors children and families to develop a meaningful connection to the Earth through Forest School classes and Summer Camps offered in Santa Clarita Valley, Topanga/Palisades, Thousand Oaks, Pasadena/Glendale, and Culver-West areas.
Children are guided by nature as they play, explore, discover, and create. Mentors develop projects based on children’s interests, naturally occurring events in nature, environmental stewardship skills, and Next Generation Science Standards. EverWild enhances children’s social and emotional development, 21st-century skills, and ecological literacy.
The majority of families who enroll their children at EverWild are homeschooling. Children typically attend our program 2-4 days/week from September-May. Many families continue attending throughout the summer months including new families who plan to homeschool in the Fall. Our partnered charter schools provide homeschoolers with tuition support to attend our program.
In commitment to diversifying the outdoors, we are actively raising funds and providing opportunities for children from low-income households to attend our Nature Immersion Program during the ‘22-’23 Forest School Year. Scholarship applications will become available Summer 2022.
