Founded in 2000, Two Coyotes is a non-profit nature mentoring organization in Connecticut that connects people to nature, community, and self. We offer programming year-round at locations in Newtown, Granby, and Killingworth, including summer camp, weekly school day programs for homeschool and public school students, weekend programs, and caregiver-child programs. Join us outdoors in the snow, mud, or sun!

Two Coyotes Wilderness School designs interdisciplinary programs that provide a dynamic environment for students to face challenges, engage their natural curiosity, and cultivate an intrinsic love for learning that they bring back into the classroom and the rest of their lives. 

We believe that nature connection is our birthright, and that catching frogs, muddy knees, and exploring wild places are essential to growing up strong and healthy. We believe that long-term nature mentoring can help children to thrive and navigate the many stages of their lives. Our mentors help children understand who they are, what their gifts are, and how to bring them to the world. We believe that this work is essential to creating a healthier, more connected future. 

Since 2000, we have honed our innovative and transformative programs as the school has grown to employ 25 part-time instructors who provide long-term mentorship to more than 500 students (birth to 17) annually through school day, weekend, child & caregiver, rites of passage, and summer camp programs. We are committed to ensuring that Two Coyotes programming is accessible, welcoming, and inclusive of all children and families in Connecticut. Scholarships are available for all of our programs.
