Where unstructured play meets outdoor adventure education. Where: Baxter Woods, Portland Time: 2:10-5:00pm Session Dates: September 8th -> December 1st (10 weeks) Best For: K-4th graders Maximum Group Size: 5 Pickup: Longfellow Elementary A combination of exploring the woods and trails, outdoor education, sports, arts & crafts and unstructured self-directed play time. Our goal is to give kids a safe and fun space to release some energy after school and be with friends old and new! Pickup at 5PM at the Percival St. trailhead. Our instructors pick up at Longfellow Elementary at 2:10 and walk the 1/3 mile to the woods together. This group is K-4 for a multi-age experience. Kids from other schools are welcome to join but must have their own transportation from school. Fall Session will run every Friday from September 8th through December 1st (10 WEEKS). No MOK on 10/6, 11/10 & 11/24, following the school calendar. All MOK programming utilizes public parks, trail systems and green spaces to help connect children and their families to accessible outdoor spaces. We feel that this approach allows both staff and families involved to learn about and appreciate outdoor recreation opportunities right here in Southern Maine. For After-School Programs, instructors pick up groups at school and walk as a a group to basecamp. We see this as a time for kids to decompress from the day, catch up with friends and to reset before a fun afternoon outside! Our after-school programs are entirely outside, rain or shine. We will communicate directly with you and provide a packing list for each season and the appropriate clothing to pack. Unless there is particularly bad weather in the forecast where there's a safety concern, we may end early or cancel. We will give you ~24hrs notice if this occurs. In the event school is cancelled for weather, there is no MOK and no refunds given. Payment for this session is due September 1st. You may select the ‘Pay in Person’ option to pay later, or by check or Venmo (@maineoutdoorkids). Checks save us processing fees.
