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.
