Nature Adventure Days

Turn a day off into a day out.

During days off from school, there is nothing better than hitting the local trails to continue the fun and learning in the great outdoors with Wild Bear! Wild Bear offers several specialty outdoor education programs throughout the year when schools have holidays and breaks.

At Wild Bear, children enjoy a full day of outdoor studies at Mud Lake and the surrounding areas of Nederland. Wild Bear incorporates science, ecology, arts, writing, primitive skills, and more into our programming to inspire a love of nature and encourage children’s natural curiosity.

Each full day program and age group will focus on a specific theme and align with their grade level studies. Wild Bear brings the learning of all subjects into the outdoors of our beautiful Nederland area! 

**SHUTTLE AVAILABLE to and from Boulder! Please choose shuttle option upon checkout on UltraCamp.**

Age Groups:

NederRangers: 5-6 year olds

Wild Naturalists: 7-8 year olds

Wild Adventurers: 9-12 year olds

Each day runs from 8:30am-4pm.

$75/day. Generous scholarships available. Wild Bear is a CCAP (state childcare assistance) provider.

Programs will continue to run in the case of inclement weather! Wild Bear Nature Center provides  large spaces with dedicated bathrooms to hold programs indoors when needed.  Masks are worn at all times when inside, and the separate rooms for each age group provide enough space for physical distancing.  Crafts, stories, games and science will all be integrated into indoor activities when weather does not permit outdoor activity.
