[About WOODS] [WOODS Manual] [Activities]

"I have ten minutes to think of something fun and educational to do, meet my fellow WOODS leaders, and get to our center!

for every age, time and weather condition!

We know it's not always easy to keep those creative juices flowing, but here's a little help. Browse through the following list of activities, arranged by subject, to find activities for every occasion!

If you have developed or used a sucessful activity at your center, please let us (Emme emg3@duke.edu or Tyson tmw12@duke.edu) know so we can add it to the website!
