Growing Wild Forest School is proud to offer year-round all-outdoor programming for youth. Each summer we offer day camp sessions for ages 3-6 from 9:30 am - 2:30 pm at our campus in West Asheville. Attendance per week costs $250, including a non-refundable deposit. In the case that programming is canceled due to COVID-19, deposits will be fully refunded. Choose which week(s) to attend based on your child's individual interests and your family's summer schedule! Each session will have a unique nature theme to inspire a sense of wonder, adventure and imagination.
