WILDERNESS YOUTH PROJECT CONNECT KIDS TO NATURE

Wilderness Youth Project (WYP) offers more than a dozen after-school outdoor play options this Fall. Most classes begin August 29 and meet weekly for 8 weeks, at various spots throughout Santa Barbara, Goleta and Ojai. WYP is currently enrolling students, grades K-8 in its Chickadees, Grasshoppers and Young Eagles programs as well as a special 16-week Forest Preschool, an outdoor-focused learning environment for children ages 3 5 years old. Each week WYP programs explore resource-rich locations such as the creeks, beaches and open spaces in Santa Barbaras abundant front country. Activities include child-centered exploration, awareness games, and the building of naturalist skills, using a nature-based mentoring curriculum that combines experience in nature with a hands-on learning process.

Programs are intentionally limited to 12 children to maintain quality and a strong relationship between staff and students. WYP has been operating programs in the south coast region of Santa Barbara for the past 17 years.
