Nature Enrichment 2020

Stay safe and learn outdoors!


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.

We are excited to offer Monday and Friday Full Day Nature Enrichment Programs for Children 5-12 years old. Each session 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! 

Age groups Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday: 

NederRangers: 5-6 year olds

Wild Naturalists: 7-8 year olds

Wild Adventurers: 9-12 year olds

Mondays and Fridays. Choose one or both days per week for month long sessions. 8:00am-4pm.

$70/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.
