CHARLESTON AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS & SUMMER CAMPS

Enriching outdoor adventure programs for kids.

PROGRAMS

We all need time outdoors. As history has progressed more and more people are living in urban locations, decreasing their bond with the outdoors and nature. The problem is that we need the time outdoors to truly thrive as human beings. This is even more true for children. But how do you get kids outdoors in a world of endless electronic entertainment, social media, and countless distractions.

The After School Adventure Programs at Wild Blue Ropes are designed to help with just that. These programs are filled with active time outdoors, providing incredible physical and mental health benefits to children, as well as being a lot of fun. Our incredibly passionate team will help guide your kids through experiential learning that will not only teach them to push themselves and expand their limits, but also redefine their capability as people.

Our mission is simple, to make a positive impact on each child while having fun.

SUMMER CAMPS 2020 AT WILD BLUE ROPES (RECAP)

The Coronavirus pandemic has seriously constrained American before- and after-school programs, and child care settings that usually provide after-school and child care support to working parents. There are so many challenges currently facing parents as they try to ensure that school-age children are safe, supervised, and able to engage in quality activities while their parents work.

The goal of Wild Blue Ropes Adventure Park’s Fall 2020 afternoon programs is to help parents manage the balance of working while still protecting their family’s health, and their child(ren)’s need for purposeful recreation. Wild Blue Ropes will keep your child safe, engaged, and active at our outdoor adventure park. 

Looking for a program we don’t currently offer? Simply contact us and let us know what you have in mind. We’d love to work with you to customize an outdoor experience program that meets your needs!
