Warriors, Educators, First Responders, & Kids In Nature


Our mission is to help Warriors, Educators, First Responders, Kids and more develop a personal, direct, and life-long relationship with nature and the outdoors. We believe that the wellness of current and future generations, the health of our planet and communities, and the economy of the future depend on humans having a strong connection with nature. Our very name is a powerful acronym for who and what we value:


Those who serve in our armed forces risk their lives to protect our freedom and safety. They set a powerful example of courage, selflessness, and service to others.


From public and private school teachers to outdoor education instructors, we believe that educators are essential to our mission and have the power to positively impact the world.


First Responders embody the spirit of service and community that we aim to cultivate in our participants. They are motivated by a desire to help others and make a positive impact in the world.


By participating in WERKIN’s nature-based activities, kids can gain confidence, problem-solving skills, teamwork, and leadership abilities, empowering them with the skills and knowledge they need to enjoy and care for the world around them.


Being “in” nature means taking a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and slowing down to really appreciate the cool breeze on our skin, the warmth of the sun on our faces, and the texture of the earth under our feet.


Nature is not just a backdrop for our activities; it’s an integral part of the experience. Our programs encourage you to explore and discover the natural world.

“My son didn’t want to go fishing. He complained the whole way there. He wanted to stay home and play video games and watch YouTube videos. It’s been three weeks since we were at your fishing event – his first time ever fishing; not a day goes by that he doesn’t ask me when we can go again.”

“I’m so glad that we went to Youth Fishing Day. My babies had a blast and were SUPER excited to catch some fish. The people that put this event together were very nice, patient, and helpful to the kids. I would definitely go to a future event!”
