Each Day an Adventure
Wildwood's residential camp consists of one or two-week sessions for boys and girls ages 9 to 14. Campers may come for one session or two consecutive sessions. Wildwood is noncompetitive: each camper is valued and respected for his or her individual talents and contributions. Our trained staff members are always accessible, serving as teachers, supervisors, and friends.
At Wildwood, campers are encouraged to make suggestions and decisions about what activities they undertake. Each week, campers choose an "Interest Group" and spend the week exploring one topic in depth. This might include Island Exploration, Forest Ecology, or Arts and Crafts. Campers also choose daily "Discovery Groups" which focus on activities such as nature games, kayaking, or dragonfly discovery.
Within these groups, boys and girls learn to cooperate and collaborate to successfully accomplish challenging activities. At the same time, they learn about environmental issues and how they can make a difference. For example, they study water quality, participate in recycling programs, and explore ways to protect wildlife habitats. With more than two-dozen different activities from which to choose, there is something for everyone at Wildwood.
Daily life at Wildwood affords campers numerous opportunities to participate in a wide range of fun and challenging activities. There is also ample time for rest and relaxation, enabling campers to spend time with friends, swim, play volleyball, visit the camp store, write letters, or read. The following are some of the activities that campers enjoy at Wildwood:
- Creative Expression
- Field Research
- Forest Ecology
- Island Exploration
- Outdoor Cooking
- Recycling Programs
- Ropes Course
- Snorkeling &Swimming
- Trail Blazing
