Outdoor Classes in Philadelphia for Kids: Activities Philly Kids Can Do Outside

If remote learning has taught Philadelphia area families anything, it's that the 'classroom' can be anywhere. Philly moms and dads are finding plenty of unique learning opportunities for their kids outside the classroom—literally. Some classes are usually held outdoors, while other traditionally indoor classes have left the building in an effort to keep kids safe. From yoga to horseback riding to martial arts, there is something new to try outside. 

Mommy Poppins Philadelphia has rounded up the list below to get you started. There is a mix of classes, sports activities, and free programs to experience outside of a classroom. Be sure to check back often as our list is regularly updated with new options. And keep an eye on our directory for more class ideas.
