2018 Camp Options:

Camp Wildwood is a five day long overnight camp filled with traditional activities for kids ages 8-13.  Campers will spend the week choosing daily fun activities, making new friends, and gaining independence and teamwork skills.  

Mini Camp is perfect for the first time camper!  This 3-day, 2-night stay at camp for kids ages 7-12 offers just enough time to experience camp’s fun activities and make new friends.

Leadership Camp is designed for young adults ages 14-17 who are interested in building leadership skills and becoming camp staff someday. Campers will learn about leadership styles, shadow camp staff, and organize a camp-wide activity.  They will also spend time working alongside the counselors, learning how to work with children, and seeing how a camp is run.  In addition to their training, campers will have the opportunity to take part in traditional activities.  The Leadership Camp focuses on training in the July 2-6 session; following training, leadership campers who are ready for internship will choose another session to return to camp with a cabin group.  The internships will be decided on during the training session.  There is no additional cost for the internship. 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wildwood is dedicated to building life-long memories and friendships for kids from diverse backgrounds. To achieve this goal, Wildwood utilizes activities that build confidence and self-esteem, and it provides campers with new experiences and learning opportunities that might not normally be available. By allowing campers to begin anew, surrounded by people who have no expectations or previous conceptions, Wildwood enables campers to become who they want to be and discover who they might become.

Camp Wildwood is expertly designed and facilitated to increase friendship skills, problem-solving confidence, appreciation and understanding for the natural world, and independence within each camper.

Financial Assistance:  During the registration process, you will have the option to request financial assistance.
