What you’ll gain from participating in Work Study:


  • 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

  • Experience working with and teaching K-5th graders about God, the Bible, farming, outdoor skills, and more.

  • Farming experience, growing veggies and packing Wilderness Experience’s garden subscription boxes with the proceeds from them helping fund this program.

  • Wilderness trips to start and end the summer. This is an opportunity to grow together as a group and learn new outdoor skills. The work study program starts and ends with overnight trips in the local area. The first one will be backpacking, and the second trip is canoeing.


Cost: $400 

Much of the actual cost of running this program will be offset by proceeds from the garden share program and donations from our supporters.
