Make. Create. Explore. Mondays
At Wildwood, we believe that learning should occur as much out of the classroom as in the classroom. This philosophy ensures a dynamic and evolving school culture that is never tedious or mundane. This belief and dedication to experiential learning means our students are completely outside the classroom each Monday and, typically, attend between 40 - 50 field trips throughout the year.
Our Monday programs are the heart of the Wildwood culture as students alternate between Adventure Mondays and Make. Create. Explore. (M.C.E.) Mondays.
On Adventure Mondays, students engage in an all day field trip that embraces cultural, scientific, and historical lessons while providing a good deal of fun for the kids. Students might explore ice caves, study orienteering, learn wilderness first aid, go kayaking in the Columbia River, sled or snowboard on Mount Hood, mountain bike at Post Canyon, go on a trip to the Japanese Garden in Portland, attend a play, and much, much, more.
Make. Create. Explore. (M.C.E.) largely takes place at the 600 acre campus located in Underwood at the Little White Salmon Biodiversity Reserve. Like the name implies, students will let their creative juices fly as they work on expansive art projects, write in journals, read, explore the vast wilderness of LWSBR, study sustainable ecosystems, make projects using wood or steel, grow and pick food in an organic garden while studying biodiversity, walk and milk farm goats, gather honey from the bee colony, harvest eggs from the free range hens, and make their own lunches from the food they've cultivated.
