School of the Wild

School of the WildSchool of the Wild is a week-long outdoor classroom field trip that introduces children to the natural history of forests, prairies, wetlands and birds, along with outdoor recreation and wilderness survival elements. Approximately 1,000 ICCSD 5th and 6th grade students participate in this program annually, helping them become more aware of and gain a greater appreciation for wildlife and the world’s ecosystem. Located at the MacBride Recreational Center, School of the Wild is a part of the University of Iowa Recreation Services programming. Through the generous support from The University of Iowa Community Credit Union, Scheels, a grant from the Community Foundation of Johnson County, as well as private donations, the ICCSD Foundation is able to contribute yearly to help offset the per pupil cost for individual schools.
