Our all outdoor after school classes offer the space and time for kids to play as they are, no judgments and no adult agendas. Whether it's digging up worms and climbing trees, making secret hideouts and playing soccer with found objects, or making muffins in the mud kitchen--it all happens here. At Brooklyn Wild, children can be their truest selves through play. 

Trained adult playworkers and nature educators gently support children's play without judgment. They respect children's ideas and all play types, and create environments of trust, freedom and permission while keeping everyone safe.

Our mixed age classes run from 3 pm to 5:30 pm and include pick-up from local schools. 


Fall classes are not held on school holidays or the Wednesday before Thanksgiving: Sep 27th, Oct 5th, Nov 8th, Nov 23rd and Nov 24th. 

When dangerously inclement weather is forecast for the entire class, we visit the library or the outdoor tents in Industry City. If we must close temporarily due to COVID, make-up classes will be offered at a date and time selected by Brooklyn Wild. All students over five must be fully vaccinated to participate. Please read our full COVID safety policy.
