Come join us in the forest after school to explore the woods, play games, make fires and crafts, and go on magical adventures.​

Wild Woods Afterschool is held in the beautiful woods of Underhill where we enjoy the rolling hills and forests as well as our brook and pond. 

Bus drop off provided by Jericho Elementary and Underhill Central.

Tuition $260/year for one day or $520/year for both days. (dropped from $500 with our new grant!).

Daily Rhythm

The Structure of the day is very flexible at Afterschool as we have a lot of children coming from public school and need an outbreath of freedom and exploration.
The general schedule is something like this:

  • 3pm- Arrival and Free play as well as tag games and other animal games in the meadow and woods.

  • 3:45pm- Head into woods camp, cut wood, collect wood, build a fire, sing some songs and eat snack around the fire.

  • 4:15pm- Activity Options which could include:

    • crafts by the fire such as carving, 

    • Play running/sneaking games, 

    • hike or adventure to a cool spot like the pond or upstream and explore there, 

    • "adventure village" where they have characters in a fantasy world and trade things they've crafted or found.

  • 5:15pm- Gather belongings and head out.

  • 5:30pm- Pick up.

What an amazing program you run! The Forest School was instrumental in my son's mental health during COVID and he looked forward to each session this year. I appreciate and am grateful for all who are involved in making Forest School happen.
