Well Wilderness Kids

Provide your child the opportunity to connect with nature & other children in a therapeutic way! The Well Wilderness Therapeutic Nature Center offers programs for children of all ages & abilities, including private therapies, therapeutic playgroups, camps & more! There are spots open for our new Therapeutic Early Childhood Nature Play Program for 3 to Half-Day Kindergartners for the 2017/2018 calendar year! 

A growing body of research suggests that psychological and physical health improve for children when they spend time in nature on a regular basis. The Well Wilderness Kids Therapeutic Nature-Based Playgroups & Open Nature Play Hours allow children to benefit from nature from a developmental perspective, including but not limited to gross/fine motor skills, visual processing, tactile, & social-emotional. The goal is for each child to experience movement & therapeutic play through all of the senses.

Private nature-based therapies, including Physical, Occupational, Speech/Language, Early Intervention & Music, are offered for children of all ages & diagnoses. Therapy sessions are conducted in a variety of natural settings & incorporate natural elements into each individual treatment plan. An indoor classroom/clinic space & Discovery Barn are also available for inclement weather conditions. Inquire to Stephanie at stephanie@wellbelliesandbabies.com for more information and/or to schedule an appointment.

Pre-register for all Playgroups, Open Nature Play Hours, Clubs & Classes under the Schedule tab. Inquire about  scheduling your program’s field trip or child’s birthday party as well!

Come play with us!

 

Discovery Barn Bash Fundraiser ~ Fri, Nov 3rd

Join us for Well Wilderness Kids Therapeutic Nature Center’s DISCOVERY BARN BASH FUNDRAISER to help create a sensory-engaging indoor/outdoor space for children & families to explore, learn & create within nature!

As one of the only inclusive nature-based programs in the United States, envisioning a space where children of all ages & abilities can come together to connect & learn in nature is our mission.

The event will begin with a Harvest Happy Hour of local wines, brews & seasonal farm fresh delights as we watch the sun set over the open sky. “Discovery Stations” will be open throughout the evening to provide the opportunity for a child-like sensory experience to touch, smell, see & taste what the Discovery Barn will have to offer. A Silent Auction, live music & bonfire will fill the night with a festive & farm-friendly atmosphere!

ADULTS ONLY! Tickets are $35 per person & include appetizers/beverages, a make-n-take sensory project, & therapeutic time spent with other nature-lovers in the crisp Fall air!
