*Wildwood offers need-based financial assistance for each session
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.
