    The Experience

    Above all, our one-of-a-kind outdoor after school care program is more fun than you can imagine! Youth get to experience many different types of activities in amazing outdoor environments! Instead of staying inside every day after school, children get to explore and experience unique natural areas featuring lakes, streams, fields, forests, beaches, fire pits, cooking shelters, archery ranges and many other ammenities! Participants learn about nature, camping skills, leadership and more. The best parts - they don’t even realize they are learning and they are staying active!

    Leadership and Personal Growth

    Modern youth do not get very many opportunities to learn life skills including how to lead others, manage conflict and think for themselves. Western Education Adventure’s after school outdoor program focuses on these skills and other life skills.
