Interested in signing up for Wild Child Forest School or Camp?
Programs are catered to specific age and interests – please carefully read the program descriptions to ensure you are signing your Wild Child up for the program that best suits their needs. Keep your child’s interests and comfort in mind when signing up for full day programs spent entirely in nature. If they have never used the “washroom” outside, talk to them about it and show them how to do it; it will help them enjoy the programs without that worry.
Safety is another factor in your decision to send your child to Forest School or Camp; we have no walls. Which means, if your child is a runner, we need to know this a head of time. We do not have funding for one-on-one support, if an educators has to leave to follow a child, that leaves the other educators short-handed. And if a child is being unsafe in the woods and refusing to work with our educators, we will have to ask the parents to come pick up their child.
We do cancel programs due to the weather: thunder and lightening warnings, heavy rainfall warnings, flash flooding, high winds of 40km consistently or gusts of 70km, extreme temperatures: +32 with the humidex, -25 with the windchill. We do not refund for weather cancelations, however, we try our best to reschedule.
Important Note about Registration: We use an online registration system (Active Network) to collect registration info and payments, so please check out Active Network for up to date programs, and to register! Once you log in, you will be able to see all of the programs your child is registered in, remaining balances, etc. A 10% non-refundable deposit (via credit card) is required to complete registration and secure your spot. We cannot issue refunds for ACTIVE Network insurance policies if they are purchased.
If programs are cancelled before the start date, a full refund will be issued. If programs are cancelled after the program has started, your refund will be prorated.
