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 5 day 4 night trips in the local area, the first one backpacking and the second 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
