Join us at Wilderness Whimsy!
Our all-outdoor Forest Programs are perfect for children who thrive in settings where they can keep their bodies active and experience the fresh air as it moves through the trees.
For preschoolers, morning meetings take place in a stump circle, number and social skills are both honed as children gather sticks and pinecones to build a home for a fuzzy caterpillar friend, and literary concepts develop on our Story Walks through the Arboretum.
