HELP VENTURA WILD STAY ALIVE!
By enrolling in our virtual programs, you are helping us keep our wonderful staff so we can start our groups again as soon as possible. Without work, our staff will be forced to look elsewhere, and may not be able to return when things get back to normal. Save the Ventura Wild Staff!
2020 Spring Programs (virtual)
Registration Is Open Now
Our staff are designing thematic series of interactive webinars, pre-recorded videos, zoom meetings and nature based activities. There will be group discussions, facilitated virtual group activities, and more. Join us for the staff and groups you love!

Give your children some nature connection in the midst of change. We want to be with your children even if we can’t get outside with them. This will be an hour where they can connect with their Ventura Wild friends and mentors. Mentors will meet with the group virtually to engage them in activities, crafts, storytelling and explorations. They will need access to a computer or tablet for one hour and some yard space that they can explore in. This really can be any front/backyard as nature is everywhere. You will get a list of needed supplies if needed (beyond what you might have at home). Your children will also learn games and activities to share with you in nature!
Below are our “NORMAL” outdoor groups of kids going together into the wilderness. Oh won’t that be fun! We are keeping them here to remind us all what is possible, and in hopes of returning to these programs soon.
