artemis pack
school year program

ages 6-16(ish)

During the school year, we explore topics from puberty to politics, friendships to family, mythology to just getting through the day.


Each “pack” is a small cohort of 6-10 kids that will stay together over the years, supporting the development of depth, intimacy and trust. We currently offer 6 age-based cohorts.


The Wild Ride is an artist and healers collective dedicated to shifting the paradigms of this dimension and beyond. Through queer frameworks of play, creative expression, and magic, we actively divest from oppressive systems and redirect that energy into mutually supported + regenerative systems of care.​

It is wonderful to have caring, queer adult role models for my kid.


Mira loves being part of a community that is open and non-judgmental when she's at (what feels like) a critical point in the process of exploring and expressing her individuality.

My child's magic and confidence has been strengthened by her pack and the program!
