Wilderness Works


Wilderness Works provides at-risk children a place to find caring adults and fun activities that teach and reach. Their mission is to empower and enrich disadvantaged and at-risk children living in urban Atlanta with year-round experiential education, recreation and outdoor adventure. Wilderness Works is a youth development agency serving homeless and disadvantaged children living primarily in Dekalb and Fulton counties.


During school months, Wilderness Works provides chaperoned overnight stays in comfortable, child-friendly, girls and boys dormitory buildings. Fridays are full of activities (one of which we will host as part of this project), while Saturdays are spent doing some kind of outdoorsy excursion. There will be 30-50 kids, ages 8-11 or in 3rd-5th grade.

Projects typically last from 7:30- 9 PM on Fridays. 

Available Dates: 

Core Camp(middle school boys only) which is the 4th Friday of the each month. 

We have filled City Camp days. Opportunities will be open in 2018.
