Wilderness Youth Project (WYP) promotes meaningful social change through an innovative, nature-based curriculum and mentoring program. Our programs return children to the traditions of childhood: outdoor time, child-centered exploration, skill/self-esteem development and connection with the natural world. A 501(c)3 non-profit organization, WYP provides scholarships to 60% of our participants thanks to the support of community members like you.

Below are some of our ongoing offerings. Check our website (www.wyp.org) for the most current schedule. After School Programs, Overnight Programs, Summer Programs, Teen Expeditions
