Coyote Kids! After School Nature Camps

Click here to jump straight to the new 2017-2018 Coyote Kids! schedule.


 
Join us once a week for outdoor exploration and adventure in our Coyote Kids! after-school nature camp. Students are guided by our highly trained instructors through games, skills trainings & experiences which nurture their connection with the earth. Every semester we focus on one of our four nature learning pathways, and every semester is unique, year after year. Students can earn their Level One Certificate for the nature learning pathway of the semester, or if a returning student, they can work toward their Level Two Certificate with our guidance. Parents receive a periodic email newsletter that describes what has been happening at Coyote Kids! nature camp (including pictures!) and includes our weekly “Dirt Time” assignments. While optional, those kids who choose to complete their Dirt Time assignments will receive a custom Coyote Kids bandanna that they can use to show off their achievement, as well as 87 additional uses!

Kinder Coyote Kids! is a specially designed Coyote Kids! program that adapts our regular Coyote Kids! curriculum for the needs and pace of Kindergarteners. Kinder Coyote Kids! is offered spring session only. Kinder Coyote Kids! will learn all the same skills as the regular Coyote Kids! It’s a great introduction to the outdoors for young students. An additional focus of Kinder Coyote Kids! will be helping students to understand how to prepare to be out in the weather at all times of year. Our staff will help them to understand how to dress appropriately and how to deal with inclement weather and stay comfortable. We want students to build the confidence to deal with all sorts of outdoor challenges. Kinder Coyote Kids! is currently available at Adams Elementary and Charlemagne Elementary. Please let us know your interest in having Kinder Coyote Kids! expand to your school.

Coyote Kids! Term Length: Each semester is comprised of a four month term. (We do not meet on any no-school day listed in the 4J Elementary Calendar. Nor do we meet if there is a no-school day that is specific to your child’s school.) For semester beginning and end dates, please see your child’s school, listed below.

Tuition: Standard tuition is 4 payments of $74.25. Tuition for schools funded by the Equity Project is 4 payments of $37.00 with no need to fill out any scholarship application. Scholarships are available, more info here. (Please note: the registration system will display the entire total for the semester term, but at checkout you will be able to select to pay in monthly installments, and without paying any interest.)
