Mountain Kids! After School Fridays

Join the afterschool Fridays program this spring with Mountain Kids! Each Friday, students will explore a different area of the mountains around Santa Fe through engaging games, activities and nature walks. Every Friday, new themes will be investigated including ecology, nature awareness, survival skills, insects, conservation, birds and archery.

Studies (and experience) show that being outside in nature is good for children’s social, emotional and spiritual health. Children develop greater confidence, team work skills and build up tolerance for adversity by spending time outside, and so much more.  All of this while having fun, getting dirty, and best for parents; tired!
