We believe in a child's right to play. Wild, messy, uninterrupted, outdoor play.
With classes in Harrisonburg and Staunton, VA, Appalachian Forest School offers outdoor recreation programs for children ages 3 to 5. We believe that curiosity sparks learning. By spending time immersed in nature, children develop resilience, problem solving skills, grit, stronger immune systems, and the ability to assess and approach risk safely.
Our aim is to foster a sense of awe in children about the natural world, encourage peer collaboration, cultivate a positive attitude toward learning, and help develop the next generation.
