Kids Trail Running & Forest Skills

Become a member of the Wolfpack by getting into the forest this summer.  Build confidence, body awareness, and an appreciation of Portland’s unique access to the forests… all while having fun!

Connect with your ancestral traditions and tune in to your animal nature by using your body the way it evolved to be used.  We will practice hiking, running, and agility skills, discuss the importance of forest stewardship, the supportive social dynamics of a “pack”, and much more!

Mornings will start w/ movement games and drills, before heading out to a different trail each day before it gets too hot. Afternoons will involve water activities, and cooperative games/adventures. Every day will be different, incorporating engaging and inspiring activities from your trail mentors. The kids will be so excited to come home and tell you about their daily escapades!

Please note:
Wy’east Wolfpack will provide qualified helping hands to maintain proper teacher/student ratios when necessary.

Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week. In addition, campers will be split up into smaller groups for skill breakdown according to age.
