Youth Programs

Getting kids outside when they are young is important for their development and for the planet’s future.


Summer Camps

We run summer camps in conjunction with Mercer Island Parks & Recreation, several different YMCAs, and the Meridian School. For more information, visit the websites of our summer partners.

Activity Days


Join us for a day adventuring at a local park. Our Activity Days are typically scheduled on week days when students have time off school and are open to grades K-5. Each Activity Day has a new adventure but may include paddling, orienteering, building shelters, outdoor cooking or hiking!

All activity days run from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Fall Quarter Activity Day Dates:

Outdoor Wilderness Enrichment Programs


Our Outdoor Wilderness before and after school program comes to your school and teaches kids outdoor survival skills through fun and engaging activities and games.


We are excited to spend the term exploring the outdoors, learning wilderness survival skills and Leave No Trace principles.  Students will have the opportunity to learn map and compass navigation, shelter building techniques and much more!

This term we are offering a K-5th grade program which will be staffed with at least two of our enthusiastic instructors.  The class will be broken up into age appropriate groups and instructors will provide unique experiences for students of all grade levels.  Every term is its own new experience so whether this is your first quarter or your fourth, we hope you will join us for some Outdoor Wilderness fun!

*We will be outside every day. If anyone needs assistance with warm/weatherproof clothes, Seattle Adventure Sports has loaners- please ask!*
