Red Oak Youth Project

Offering nature connection programs for ages 5-15. 
Coming soon: Animal Tracking for ages 7-11, Sat. Feb 29!

Red Oak Youth Project is committed to supporting youth to know themselves in the context of the greater web that they are a part of, seeing and thinking for themselves with an understanding of our interconnectedness in a world that asks us evermore to do so. In the day-to-day, this means supporting children to build relationship with the natural world, each other, and themselves, through meaningful play and exploration. Through time outside, we believe that youth are aided in their sensory development in ways for which the human body has been wired for millennia, integrally supporting them in their ability to predict and orient, and become more emotionally stable and resilient. By building familiarity with neighbors of all kinds, we hope to help youth to discover a sense of unquestionable belonging.

This spring’s programs will be run by Ida Rotto, joined by guest mentors from the Decorah area. All programs will take place within a 10 mile radius of Decorah Iowa. Specific locations will be sent upon registration.

We run our programs on a sliding scale basis, turning no one away for lack of funds. Please contact us at 563.419.5741, or email [email protected] for more information.
