Wylde Winter Camp – Oakhurst

February 2018

Winter Camp Image

Don’t miss this opportunity to explore Oakhurst Garden in winter. While everything may seem to be asleep, campers will discover what kinds of things are alive and thriving at this time of year. Campers will enjoy learning about the seasons, why we have winter and what animals as well as people from cultures around the world do at this time of year! Each day we’ll explore a new topic, packed full of games, activities, creative exploration and preparing season inspired snacks!

Then on Friday, we’ll take to the Wylde Center’s Oakhurst Garden for a day focused on SNOW! Yes, you read that right. Despite what the weather is like, campers will have the chance to build snow sculptures, learn about snowflakes, have a snow battle and of course, enjoy S’mores and hot cocoa around the campfire!

Campers must bring lunch each day. A daily farm fresh snack is provided.

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