I believe this passionately: that we don’t grow into creativity, we grow out of it. Or rather, we get educated out if it.
— Ken Robinson

As we attempt transform from the leading nation of industrialism to the leading nation of entrepreneurism, the future of our education system and economic engine is more ambiguous and unknown than ever. Instead of developing our natural curiosity and creativity, we are often taught out of it. Human beings flourish and find deep meaning in their capacity to create and make something. There is a need for playfulness, resilience and space to dream, challenge and adapt with the unknowns of the future. WYLD demands a childlike and innovative lens for problem solving, teamwork and novel experiences. May it be physical, like figuring out how to build a fire-pit, or interactive, like moving cattle from one pasture to another, each retreat is designed to use alternative thinking to problem solve and create solutions for the ranch. Individuals return to their world with a greater capacity to innovate and see new perspectives.
