Camper Communication

Updates from Campers

We will update our Facebook page (Wildwood Outdoor Education Center) throughout the week to keep parents updated on some of the activities happening at camp!

Pictures will be posted in CampSite’s “Camp Today Blog” throughout the week.

Care Packages/Mail

Mail is delivered by rural carrier to and from Wildwood Monday through Saturday.

USPS delivery times can be unpredictable, so consider sending mail early or brining mail with you when dropping off your child. You are welcome to leave mail with Wildwood staff to distribute during the week. This will ensure your camper receives your mail while they are here.

If mail arrives after your camper has departed, it will be returned to sender. Campers look forward to receiving mail at camp, so we encourage you to write your child. We will also encourage your child to return your messages.

Please do not include any snacks or food items in any mail. Mail is distributed Monday-Thursday.

To write your camper, please use the following format:

Camper Name, Camper Session

Wildwood Outdoor Education Center

7095 W 399th ST

La Cygne, KS 66040


If you’d like to email your camper while they are here, please login to your CampSite Parent Dashboard, choose the left navigation menu, select “e-mail my camper.”

Write them a message and we’ll make sure it’s delivered.

We will deliver email messages Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. If you send a message on Thursday, please make sure it is submitted by 3PM. This will allow us to ensure your camper receives the message.

Please note – messages can only be sent after your camper has arrived at camp.

Telephone Calls/Text Messages

Campers do not make or receive calls and messages at camp as we provide a much needed break from technology.

If a situation arises in which you must speak with your child while camp is in session, please call or text the Wildwood phone (913-738-9067).

Texting is generally faster and easier for Wildwood staff to read and respond to. If you call, please expect to speak with a staff member who will check in with your camper’s group leader. Please understand that there will generally be a delay in getting in touch
