Wylde Summer Camp – Oakhurst

Wylde Summer Camp – Oakhurst

June – July 2019

Camp Fun

Your child will explore the Oakhurst Garden, a unique urban setting complete with native woods, creek and farm. Each week of camp will have a different theme, so campers signed up for multiple weeks can have a new and exciting experience each time. The theme will guide the instruction, games and crafts. Other activities may include planting, tasting fresh organic fruits and veggies from the garden, creek walks, salamander hunts, caring for resident chickens, pond exploration and short hikes to greenspaces in the Oakhurst neighborhood.

On Friday we’ll celebrate the end of camp with a day at our Hawk Hollow site where we’ll explore the creek, swing from the hollow tree, visit the Hobbit Houses, make s’mores around a camp fire and beat the heat with an optional water fight!

Campers will need to be dropped off and picked up from Oakhurst Garden Monday through Thursday, and from Hawk Hollow on Friday.

There is a small camper to educator ratio with a maximum of 16 campers per session, so register ASAP!

Wylde Builders!

People aren’t the only living things that like to build up and change the world around them. This week we’ll learn about some of nature’s most skilled architects, construction workers and artists. Campers will learn about these amazing animals and some of the cool techniques that humans have tried to copy and are only beginning to understand.


June 10 – 14:

[PreK – K]

Wylde Colors!

The garden is in bloom, plants and animals everywhere are full of bright colors and we’ll explore them all! We’ll go on a hike, talk about how animals use camouflage to their advantage, play with lights and prisms, learn about pigments and incorporate colors in every lesson, craft and game!


June 24 – 28:

[1st – 3rd]

Wylde Energy!

The universe runs on energy and life on Earth wouldn’t be possible without it! This week we’ll talk about the power of the sun and how it gives life and connects us all. We’ll spend some time studying how plants and animals get their energy, some cool sources of energy in nature (like fire and lightning), meet some animals and learn about the amazing ways they use and conserve energy.


July 8 – 12:

[PreK – K] 

Wylde Nature!

Why do plants grow? What’s that bug? Why do turtles have shells? This week of camp we’ll explore all things outdoors including, plants, animals, soil and weather. We explore the garden, stream and pond and answer all of those burning questions campers have about nature!


Some activities maybe weather dependent and therefore subject to change at camp director’s discretion.
