Cahoots Nature Program for Children
Full NameWisdom of The Earth Wilderness School
LocationSalt Spring Island

CAHOOTS Nature Programs provide year-long weekly nature connection and adventure for children, based on Nature Awareness and Coyote Mentoring, in the south end of Salt Spring Island. Our creative mentoring approach honours each child’s unique gifts and passions, encourages self-awareness in learning, supports a sense of belonging in community, and awakens a deep kinship with nature.

Our FRIDAY program is an ideal outdoor opportunity for children who are in public school, as it coordinates with the sd64 school calendar.

We offer 3 Sept-June weekly programs:
MONDAYS 10am – 3pm, for ages 7-11, based at Beaver Point Hall (coordinates with Heartwood program)

THURSDAYS 10am – 3pm, for ages 6-9, based at Reynolds Road (coordinates with Heartwood program)

FRIDAYS 10am – 3pm, for ages 6-12, based at Reynolds Road (coordinates with sd64 non-instructional Fridays)
All programs also have field trips to other south end locations.

What happens at Cahoots?
At Cahoots, every day is a special adventure on the land, in the company of friends!
Learn how the animals live in the wild, finding all their food, medicine, shelter, and water. Learn the old skills that have allowed people all over the world to thrive in nature!
Play games, go on wild adventures, make natural crafts, and cultivate a deeper sense of our place in the natural world. Through activities, challenges, and song, children will discover greater self-confidence, learn cooperation and teamwork, develop empathy. and gain a sense of environmental care taking.

We prioritize small group learning and one-on-one mentoring to really get to know your child and bring forth their natural passion and curiosity for learning while ultimately drawing out and lifting up their own unique gifts. Driven by inquiry and connection, we will create a group experience that time and time again has demonstrated increased confidence and self-expression, compassion and understanding and a deep love for self, others and the natural world.

Our instructors are highly specialized and deeply skilled in Deep Nature Connection Awareness, Cultural Repair, Community Building, and Coyote Mentoring. They truly “walk the walk” in all aspects of this work, practicing the core routines of nature connection in their own everyday lives, and carry a deep commitment to children and future generations.

Costs vary depending on how many sessions in the program. Children may be registered in more than one Cahoots day.
Please note that each day has different mentors and runs independent of the other days.
