Wildwood units are designed to create a peer-focused community.
Carson girls: ages 8-10, entering grades 3-4-5 in the fall
Leopold boys: ages 8-10, entering grades 3-4-5 in the fall
Campers live in rustic cabins within a unit - a cluster of 2-4 cabins. A counselor sleeps in each cabin with 4-7 campers. A unit leader is available to support campers and staff in each unit. Each unit has toilet facilities nearby and centrally located showers just down the path.
At Wildwood, the environment is fun and noncompetitive: each camper is an important part of the community and is valued and respected for his or her interests and contributions. When campers arrive at Wildwood, they choose an Nature Exploration Groups (NGs) activity, which they'll participate in each morning, allowing time to discover field, forest, and wetland habitats and the intriguing behaviors of birds, insects, mammals, invertebrates, and more through hands-on investigation. In the afternoon, campers will choose from a variety of Discovery Group (DG) activities, so every day brings new experiences. Later in the day during Open Activity Time (OATs), campers can choose from a number of informal activities on the spot. Every day, campers have opportunities to grow in independence with the support of the entire Wildwood community.
The first half of the camp tuition is due at registration. The remaining half is due by May 1. The first $100 paid is non-refundable. If you need to cancel before May 15th, we will refund all but $100. After May 15th, no refund is available. Refunds are not given for dismissal, failure to attend, absence, or illness/injury.
Wildwood utilizes electronic submission of health forms through CampDoc.com. In March, an invitation will be sent from CampDoc to create a profile. Your log in ID will be the parent/guardian email address. Please notify the office of any changes. Forms need to be completed by May 1. The Camp Handbook with packing list can be found on our website, updated each spring.
