Wylde Nature Camp

Wylde Center Nature Camp

Wylde Nature Camp

June 2017

Your child will explore the Oakhurst Garden, a unique urban setting complete with native woods, creek and farm. Activities may include planting, preparing and tasting fresh organic food, creek walks, salamander hunts, arts and crafts and other fun educational activities. On Fridays we celebrate the end of camp with a day at our Hawk Hollow site. Campers will need to be dropped off and picked up from Oakhurst Garden Monday through Thursday, and from Hawk Hallow on Friday.

Campers must bring lunch each day (with the exception of Week 2 for PreK children). A daily farm fresh snack is provided. There is a small camper to educator ratio with a maximum of 15 campers per session.
