The Exploration K-4th Program is housed at the Wallowa, Enterprise and Joseph School Districts. Curriculum is provided by Building Healthy Families, Wallowa County Prevention Collaborative, Josephy Center and other community partners. BHF coordinates the program and views out-of-school-time programming as an important and growing piece of the value they can offer to children of all backgrounds in Wallowa County. Exploration is assessed as a high priority to continue and expand in part because of the collaboration it encourages and also its potential for universal use and acceptance.
The Summer Exploration K-4th Program takes place in each school district for two weeks in the summer. Program participants have healthy food and outside time, along with field trips to local areas of interest. Other curriculum may include art, cooking, STEM and much more!
