Programs at Two Coyotes Wilderness School in Newtown, CT

Coyote Village School Day Programs

Our weekly, school day programs are our most powerful programs, thanks to our families’ commitment to long-term nature mentoring for their children. With age groups from 5-17, kids don’t just take one of our programs – they grow up in them. Led by our skilled mentors through challenges and reflection in nature, they develop a deep understanding of who they are, what they value, and what their gifts are. Our students come from homeschool, public school, and private school backgrounds, and our program is designed to complement your child’s educational experience no matter what the setting may be. Coyote Village is a wilderness-based mentoring program that helps raise healthy and connected children in a community setting. We provide students with a dynamic environment to push their own edges, engage their natural curiosity, and cultivate an intrinsic love of learning that they carry with them for the rest of their lives.

Coyote Pups Caregiver & Child Program

Our Coyote Pups caregiver and child program is a time where you and your little one can explore and learn about nature together. Meet families who share your love of nature and enjoy the community and friendships that form. Children in the program range from infants to five years old. Over the course of the morning, we sing songs, play games, create art, listen to stories, explore the forest, harvest wild feasts, and much more! Aunties, uncles, grandparents, and other adult caregivers are welcome to bring your little one, too. While the program includes ages 0 to 5, the core group activities are created for ages 2 to 4 years old. Children under one can attend for free with an older sibling.
