Nestled in the valley behind El Sobrante, California, Wildcat Canyon Community School is a beautiful, 90-acre facility which backs directly up to Wildcat Canyon, an East Bay Regional Park. This amazing setting offers playgrounds, a garden, a wood shop, archery range, and miles of trails to explore to learn about nature.
We are so excited to host our programs here this summer. As with all natural settings, it's important to be prepared:
