Afterschool Enrichment

Valley View's After School Nature Clubs offer children what they really need; time spent outside, actively learning and exploring in the natural world. Sessions engage students in active, hands-on experiences throughout the changing seasons. Each group meets weekly, and sessions include hiking, exploring, playing nature games, learning new skills and engaging in a variety of projects in the wild. Our enrichment clubs allow students to engage with nature & connect with others in a meaningful way.
