Our vision for the Wilderness Experience work-study program has several facets:

  • Spiritual growth and mentorship through daily group devotionals, helping plan and run our K-5th grade programs, and time spent together exploring and discussing God's creation

  • Work and farming experience via growing veggies for and running Wilderness Experience’s farmstand and garden subscription boxes with the proceeds from them helping fund this program.

  • Outdoor and wilderness skill development! Too hot to work in the garden? We’ll hit the water for the day in our canoes, or spend some time hiking a portion of our great trail system.

  • Wilderness trips to start and end the summer. We’ll bookend the program with two 5 day 4 night trips in the local area, one backpacking and one canoeing.


Cost: $400, much of the actual cost of running this program will be offset by proceeds from the farmstand/garden share program and donations from our supporters
