JOY Logo Version 2                                                The Mission of JOY: Journeys Out Yonder is to provide people of all ages with experiences that tease their senses and touch their imagination.  Small groups will enable journeyers to explore the world, creating bonds with each other and those they encounter along the way.

In short, all of those who bring JOY into their lives will also contribute to the JOY of others.

Starting at birth, all people naturally find joy in play. My JOY for you will revolve around the 8 Principles of Childhood and Nature, identified and promoted by David Sobel. As an adult, these principles still guide my own adventures. They’ll guide ours as well.

Special Places



Small Worlds

Hunting and Gathering

Animal Allies and,

Maps and Paths

Journeys Out Yonder provides place-based adventure programs for young children. We utilize the vast outdoor landscapes to feed children’s curiosity, advance childhood play, develop self efficacy and social connections, while building strong, capable bodies. Children who learn to love where they live learn to care for it. Our purpose is to support families who want their children to learn about nature, in nature and for nature.”
