Youth Programs

We have curated educational programs to meet the needs of our communities; affordable alternative care options, getting outdoors and fostering holistic and ethical relationships with land and community.


Keep the Connection | Aferschool Outdoor Education program

*with school pick-up*


Keep The Connection is your local, Earth centered, 100% outdoor based afterschool program, that brings the kids to their neighboring nature site. They travel by foot with their mentors and classmates, where they set up their temporary outdoor camp, rain or shine. After a long day at school, we provide an opportunity to simply be in nature and to “keep the connection”. Our Keep The Connection family get to relax along the shore and tree-lined park under canopies and warmed by small propane campfires. Our mentors facilitate safe, free range exploration, high paced activities like predator and prey, slack-lining, wild crafting and outdoor survival skills.

Little Mountain Nature School is an enriching mixture of child-lead outdoor exploration and intentional creative play. Our Playschool curates bi-annual, outdoor art shows, showcasing the children’s favorite pieces. These invariably take place at the end of June at Paradise playground and in Springtime in a favorite local forest.
