-------------------------------------

This 2021/2022 school year, we are very excited to once again offer a series of After School Programs, day-time programs, afternoon workshops, bike clubs, and weekend workshops, widening the breadth of our Jr. Youth Outdoor Studies & Environmental Science Programs.

-------------------------------------

This school year, our Afternoon Program in the Hillside Trails (from Trailside Elementary School) explores the wild/urban connection that exists in our local woods. The focus will be outdoor studies and environmental science through hands-on learning and play. Topics and themes will loosely follow the seasons and the weather, and we take learning opportunities as they occur through exploration and observation.

------

In the Fall/Winter 2021 Semester, we will be working with our youth explorers to develop a collaborative nature journal where characters, maps, and plots are born from imagination and are interwoven with the science and activities behind our local urban-wild connection.

-------------------------------------

THE LOGISTICS:  *3:30 pm: Youth Outdoor Explorers are picked up from Trailside Elementary School, and from there we will walk to start our journey into the Hillside Woods and Trails.

------

*5:30 pm: Parents Pick up their students at Trailside Elementary.

------

*Starting around mid-October through mid-April, we will have a "home-base" and pick up will happen between 5-5:30 from Trailside Elementary School. While our program is nearly 100% outdoors, on very cold days we will utilize an indoor space for the afternoon program, either coming in briefly to warm-up, or staying in for the afternoon, depending on the temperature and wind-chill.

-------------------------------------

HOW TO BOOK:  You can select drop-in days if you are looking for a more random or on an as-needed basis, or, if you need regular after-school care each week, select the day(s) of the week per year you would like to book.

-------------------------------------

COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS:  In addition to following State of AK and CDC guidelines, we will follow both ASD and each school's guidelines based on the program we are operating. All of our guides are vaccinated and we will be wearing masks in indoor spaces, and potentially outdoors depending on the level of risk in the community and as recommended by local and national health officials.

-------------------------------------

OPERATING CALENDAR:  Our after school programming runs from Mid August to Late May, following the Anchorage School District 2021/2022 calendar. After School Programs operate on all scheduled school days and not on in-service days, half-days, or winter and spring break. We do offer specific in-service, half-days, winter, and spring break programs - check out "our programs" or booking page on our website for more information.
