Wild Child is a project of Sierra Club Canada Foundation that provides child led, play-based learning through repeated exposure to nature. At our programs we empower children to take the lead on their learning in a natural setting over time, which may mean getting wet, dirty, making stuff with tools, and learn to extend their limits in a thoughtful and intentional way.
