Coyote Pups Parent & Child Program

Your children can have the experience of growing up in a village!

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 infant 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.

Winter Pups

During the winter we spend two hours outdoors, bundled up for a winter hike, while we look at animal tracks, enjoy warm wild birch tea around a campfire, sing songs and play games together. We will keep moving to stay warm (so bring a baby carrier or backpack for little ones) and enjoy each other’s company as we explore the land together. Children will learn through observation as their grown-up models how to enjoy the beautiful outdoors through the winter. Wearing layers is imperative for Winter Coyote Pups and their caregivers.

Spring and Autumn Pups

During the school year we meet weekly on the same day as our homeschool village classes. Children can look forward to many games, stories, crafts and exploration as they learn alongside their caregiver.

Spring and Autumn sessions include the cost of a family overnight* in the program tuition. Pups & Wild Seeds (our 5-7 age group) will combine with their siblings and parents to camp together as a village. More information will be provided after registration. 

**Fall 2020/Spring 2021 will not include an overnight due to COVID safety measures.**

Summer Pups

Summer Pups have a choice, depending on location, of weekly meetups or a one-week “mini-camp”, as we build community and get to know each other.  You can opt for the weekly camp, full-week mini-camps, or a combination. 

Registration is accepted on a rolling basis until the program is full. Scholarships are available. We offer a sibling discount for Pups and siblings under one year (babes in arms) are free.
