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. 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 when a Trackers instructor meets your child at school and transports to a local park. There, students train in archery, wilderness survival skills, homesteading and storytelling. We may learn to carve wood, safely make fire with no matches, go crabbing at the Berkeley Marina, make pickles, or dye a scarf with wildflowers. At the end of the day, you pick your child up at our Berkeley HQ at 3049 Adeline St. in Berkeley.*

*Please note that Cornell Elementary ends their day at Cornell at 5:30 PM.

If you are unable to provide your deposit now due to financial hardship, please contact us directly so we may make alternate arrangements.

Grade Changes for 2014-2015

We keep our groups small to facilitate one-on-one attention from instructors to participating students. To further enhance instructional and program quality, we are limiting participation to students in grades 2 - 5. Depending on the ages of other students the group, we may be able to make exceptions on a case-by-case basis for 1st grader siblings of enrolled students, particularly those who have participated in Trackers programs before.  Please contact us to learn more.

Cancellation and Withdrawal Policy

Because of our small group sizes at each school, we are greatly impacted by mid-year cancellations and withdrawals.  Nevertheless, we understand that the needs of families may change during the school year.  Our cancellation policy is as follows:
