EDUCATION. DISCOVERY. CONNECTION.
Growing Wild Forest School is a nature-immersion preschool and summer camp located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. Founded in 2016, the school serves as the region's first and only not-for-profit early childhood education program that nurtures child-led nature connection and whole-child development across the changing seasons.
Operating year-round, GWFS offers four-hour school days for ages 3-6, and one-of-a-kind camp programming in the summer months for ages 3-8. We also offer monthly "free forest school" weekend programs which are open to all in the community!
