After School Outdoors Program Bay Area, CA

Get your kids outside! The Trackers after school program offers a perfect, necessary balance to a long day of classroom instruction. With us children have an opportunity to move, explore and reconnect with nature. Creative, active lessons wake up the children to the world around them and to their own competence. Children practice working together, tending to the land and to one another. Trackers kids do more than learn, they engage.

The afternoon begins as the Trackers Bus picks your child from their school to a local park. There, students train in tracking, wilderness survival skills, homesteading and storytelling. We may learn to carve wood, safely make fire with no matches, make pickles or sew a magic cape. At the end of the day, you pick your child up either at their school or our in-town headquarters (depending on your school region).

Typical Day

2pm-3pm School Pick-Up We pick your child up from your school. Since different schools release at different times, we are mostly traveling then.

3pm-5 or 5:30pm Guild Activities Our instructors introduce the activity for the afternoon. Since this is Trackers we always go out of doors (come rain or shine). It could be animal tracking, wilderness skills, survival and more.

5:30 or 6pm Parent Pick-Up & Games You pick up your child at our Berkeley Headquarters inspired and happy from an afternoon of adventure immersed in nature and the arts.
