PLAY. EXPLORE. CREATE.
Welcome to Camp Wildrock summer day camps! We are excited to offer six sessions of nature immersion experiences that celebrate the joy of exploratory play in nature! Nature provides endless opportunities for engaging the imagination, creating art with natural materials, investigating streams and forests, and making up games with friends. At Wildrock, children spend relaxed days on the forest trail, learn to care for Wildrock’s animals, and partake in collaborative skill-building workshops. All sessions are for children ages 6 to 10 and run from 9am to 3pm. Sessions are $365 for one week. Groups are a maximum of 8 children. Social distancing measures will be in place. The majority of the day will be outside. Indoor activities will follow COVID protocols.
Wild About Animals: (July 19- 23 or August 9-13) Children learn about the superpowers of animals native to Wildrock, look for signs of animal activity in the woods, build simple habitat structures to support wildlife, and befriend the four animals that live in Wildrock’s barn (Leche the rabbit, Levi the turtle, Frederica the snake, and Willow the hedgehog).
Into the Wild: (June 21 – 25 or August 2- 6) Children are presented with daily adventures. Dissecting owl pellets to discover what was for dinner and using binoculars to identify distant birds of prey are just a few of the fun activities that await.
Stories of the Land: (June 28 – July 2 or July 12- 16) Using expressive art and story-telling, children learn the history of the people and animals that have lived at Wildrock over time. All activities encourage hands-on investigation and collaborative problem solving.
Ages 6 – 10
At a time when childhood has moved indoors and in front of screens, Wildrock is committed to bringing the therapeutic benefits of nature play to children and families throughout our community. Our Nature Play Lab outreach program provides engaging nature play opportunities for children and families in underutilized urban green spaces and our On Solid Ground Program fosters emotional resilience by building strong networks of social support through shared experiences in nature. We offer school-based programs and traveling workshops to support children in developing a healing relationship with the natural world.
