Weekend Outings 2024
Two to three times each month, Wilderness Kids students get outside on a Saturday, Sunday, or school holiday for an extended adventure. We are thankful to the Alexandria Fund for Human Services for making these Weekend Outings possible through their generous grant to Wilderness Kids.
Check out some of our great adventures from 2022 and 2023 here.
