Program Description

Take the classroom outside and participate in nature learning activities with Wild & Immersive’s youth programs. We offer affordable and customizable outdoor education programs for schools and youth groups in British Columbia, delivering an immersive, hands-on approach to environmental based learning.

Our field trips are tailored for all age groups with our Sprouts (pre-school to grade 3), Seedlings (Grade 4-7) and Saplings (Grade 8-12) programs. Group leaders can customize their field trip by choosing from our 15 modules (1-4 modules per field trip depending on length of day). Please contact us for our information package and module descriptions.

Our field trips run out of the Malcolm Knapp Research Forest in Maple Ridge, or we can come to your location and do an in-class program.
