Now Introducing Nature School!

We are proud to offer nature school programs, with session 1 starting August 31, 2020 – each calendar is a different age group offering various age-appropriate programs. All programs have a focus on academic subjects within the context of nature.
You can book your program by 1-month sessions. Book a single day per week/per session, or book multiple programs to create a full-time nature school program per session.

A Preschool in the Woods
ages 3-6 (TBA)
At Into the Woods Alaska, our guides apply experiential learning and outdoor safety skills, as much as possible, to support the learning of academic subjects.
For example, in math and science we will bring in map reading, the making of compasses, and measuring natural phenomena like creek levels, trees, and doing geometry measurements in the mountains.
In literature and writing, we will read while in nature but also assign children to read outside of the program so we can discuss the book while wandering through our natural spaces and learning outdoor safety skills. Kids – everyone- learns best while moving and using their hands. We are excited to bring Into the Woods Alaska into this next phase of development and offer more quality outdoor studies programming to your family.
Experiential learning, Outdoor Studies, and a childhood spent playing in the woods — This is what we’re all about.
Into the Woods Alaska is dedicated to the idea that all children have the right to grow up playing in the woods and learning the value of nature in our lives. During these stressful times, children need nature in their lives now more than ever. We are working on a nature school program for children so they can still have quality time outdoors and gain access to an education in core curriculum without being on a screen device all day. Stay tuned to our blog and newsletter-more details coming at the end of July.
