At Wild Bear, children enjoy 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 four days a week of 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 will bring the learning of all subjects into the outdoors of our beautiful Nederland area!

Age groups: 

NederRangers: 5-6 year olds

Wild Naturalists: 7-8 year olds

Wild Adventurers: 9-12 year olds
