Wilderness Skills Camp - summer day camp for youth ages 6 to 12 - is Alderleaf's program for youth. Now your children can also experience Alderleaf's amazing wilderness education! Kids learn the basics of wild edible plants, birding, wilderness survival, ecology, wildlife tracking, and more through exciting adventures, activities, crafts, and games.

Students spend days exploring forests, creeks, and meadows while learning about nature. Our camps teach about the plants, trees, birds, insects, mammals, and other species local to the Pacific Northwest. Through our nature curriculum, students also gain respect, responsibility, communication, and teamwork skills.

"My 7-year old daughter attended your 5-day youth summer camp. She had an amazing time and learned a lot about outdoor survival, nature, and wildlife. Most importantly, she gained a tremendous love for the outdoors. We are so grateful to Alderleaf for this awesome program!"
