What Do We Do In Ventura Wild?
All programs cover Sensory Awareness, Traditional Nature Knowledge & Skills, Compassionate Communication Skills, Stewardship and Leave No Trace practices. Each program is organically crafted by the educators based on the abilities and interests of the group, the season and weather conditions, and the teachable moments that nature presents.
We cultivate a tone of playful curiosity with activities, projects, games, stories and songs…all inspiring nature connection and relationship building. Learning through play, exploration, and discovering our natural environments is crucial to growing the best humans. Every week we explore the wild around our communities and gain a sense of belonging, confidence and self sufficiency, and social skills. Our instructors are above all mentors, but also skilled naturalists, experienced educators and compassionate leaders, facilitating group and independent activities with joy and care.
We are working hard to grow our capacity to offer more variety of programs, diversity of staff, and build a community of Nature Connected families! We hope you ALL want to contribute, join us in community, and spread the word that Ventura Wild has something all children need.
