Wild Earth Wilderness School
Wild Earth has been cultivating character, confidence, passion, and perseverance in young people through transformative nature immersion experiences since its founding in 2004. We lead programs primarily for youth aged 4 to 18, but also adults, families, and private groups, serving over 2,200 individuals in nearly 300 programming days each year in New York's Hudson Valley.
Wild Earth programs offer earth living skills, awareness enhancing activities, team and community building, and story and song, facilitated by multi-generational mentors in the stunning forests, mountains, and streams of the Hudson Valley. Wild Earth’s core programming is fee-based, with subsidized and free programs for local public schools and community organizations serving children and families facing systemic disadvantage, poverty, mental health challenges, incarceration, and food insecurity.
