Trackers After School Programs

Join Trackers After School for outdoor adventure and folk crafts throughout the year! 

Trackers offers a transported After School program that brings kids to nature. This program offers an excellent balance to a long day of classroom instruction. Creative, active lessons wake the children up to the world around them and to their own abilities. Children practice working together and tending to the land. Trackers kids do more than learn, they engage.

Transported After School Outdoors: East Bay

Please note that for the 2019-20 school year, we will only be offering our after school program on Fridays, to students enrolled at Yu Ming Charter School. We pick your child up from school for an afternoon of exploring the outdoors or craft work at our Berkeley workshop HQ. During the school year we explore a wide range of topics, including wilderness survival, fishing, homesteading crafts, archery, and more. You pick up between 5:30 and 6 PM at our Berkeley HQ at 1336 Channing Way, Berkeley. 

2019-2020 Yu Ming After School Registration Information


To secure your space for Fall 2019 we require a non-refundable $75 deposit per child, per enrolled day.  Choose our easy monthly payment plan, or pay your balance for the year in full by 8/15 for a 5% discount. Charter school payments are not eligible for the discount. However, if you are paying partially by charter school and partially out of pocket, all out of pocket totals paid in full by 8/15/19 are eligible for the 5% discount. 

If you enroll in a payment plan, your monthly payment is your full year's tuition divided by 9. Monthly tuition charges are NOT based on the number of classes in that specific month. This is for ease of accounting and budgeting. Payments are automatically debited once monthly from September - May. Please note that registrations are for a full year; however, we do allow for mid-season withdrawals per our cancellation policy (see below).

Cancellation and Withdrawal Policy

Because of our small group sizes, we are greatly impacted by mid-year cancellations and withdrawals. Nevertheless, we understand that the needs of families may change during the year.  Our cancellation policy is as follows:

  • We request a two-week courtesy notice prior to withdrawals, made in writing via email.

  • For all withdrawals, we will retain your non-refundable deposit as a $75 withdrawal fee.

  • Tuition due at the time of withdrawal will be calculated based on elapsed program days. Due to our monthly payment schedule, this will not always match up perfectly with tuition paid. Any overpayment will be refunded and should a balance be due an invoice will be sent.
