Wilderness Skills, Nature Connection & Ecological Stewardship Wrapped in Lots of Adventure and Play
At Vilda, we strengthen our connections to the natural world. We spend time outdoors with our hands in the dirt and feet on the ground. We plant trees, clear brush, look for frogs, eat wild plants, make a fire by friction or dye a shirt with berries. We learn real skills that allow us to remember that we truly are an important part of this landscape. The kids in our programs experience hands-on that they can make a positive difference in the world.
We like to think of our camps as an outdoor summer vacation adventure. We blend plenty of unstructured time outdoors with an expert crew of adult instructors sharing wilderness skills and naturalist knowledge. We offer week-long day camps with half-day (4-6yrs) and full-day (6-12yrs) options, as well as overnight trips.

SCHOOL YEAR PROGRAMS
Our youth programs facilitate place-based experiences that create lasting memories and connect the group to a deep well of ancient wisdom often lost in our modern world. There is so much learning that happens by simply playing outdoors. We enter a timeless, boundaryless classroom where each plant and animal is a teacher, each path a lesson and each muddy footstep an adventure. Learn more about our school year programs here.
