A unique survival skills program, Running Wild is designed to teach ancient knowledge and understanding of the natural world combined with unique instruction on the time-honored techniques of wilderness living.
Expect your child to learn about the wonders of their environment and all its natural processes through immersion in a full sensory experience with nature. Earthworks staff encourage kids to explore  while working closely with peers to practice wilderness skills such as; shelter building, fire making, wild crafting, identification of flora and fauna, use of plants for food and medicine, purification of water, natural navigation, responsible tool use and more. Our curriculum combines unique outdoor games with challenges that give children the confidence to discover the outdoors in a safe and meaningful way. Our goal is to activate each child’s curiosity and love for learning while fostering personal growth, social responsibility and bonds that last a lifetime.

This program will take place at various public green spaces within Rochester.

Designed especially for young learners, this class brings your child into a world where they are free to discover and feel at home in the woods. Learning without knowing they are even in a class, young children will receive a unique education on the concepts of  basic wilderness safety, hiking, ecology, navigation, food and hydration, shelters, and leave-no-trace practices to build their connection to the great outdoors. Kids have a natural curiosity that just can’t be contained! On these hikes, your child can expect hands-on activities, songs, games and stories to create a deep connection to the elements of nature as well as to build skills and memorable experiences to last a lifetime.

This program will take place on Tuesdays at Corbett’s Glen located in Rochester.
