Where Learning is an Adventure

Wildwood offers experiential education to awaken joy in learning in children ages 6-12. Through listening, seeing, manipulating and building models, conducting experiments, playing games, doing art and crafts and taking part in group discussions children at Wildwood discover that learning is exciting and fun.

Some past workshops we have enjoyed are: Puppets and puppetry, Festivals of Light, World Religions, Wildwoodville, economics for children, Outreach, Playbuilding, Passport to the World and Christmas Around the World, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, BC History and the Gold Rush, Body Science, Geology and Ecology.



Hi everyone,
Here's the line-up of courses at Wildwood for 2013-14.
I'll only be offering courses in Fort Langley next year --with one notable exception:
Wildwoodville will be offered in East Van. on Fridays in January, as well as on both Tuesdays and Thursdays in Fort Langley!

Last year nearly every course -right through to June- was sold out by the end of July, so get your application in early if you're interested.

To hold a spot in a course, please send two cheques: one non-refundable deposit of $25 per child and one post-dated cheque for the balance, dated four weeks BEFORE the course begins. Do this for EACH course you want to enroll in. Make cheques out toWildwood and on them please write: name of child and name and day of course. Also be sure to note on the cheque whether I can cash the cheque or whether I should hold it for funding from your DL.
