The Leadership Camp is designed to focus on the training in the session July 2 – 6; leadership campers who are ready for internship will choose another session afterwards to return to camp with a cabin group. The internships will be decided upon during their first session. There is no additional cost for the internship, it is included in the original fee.
Wildwood is dedicated to building life-long memories and friendships for kids from diverse backgrounds. Wildwood will utilize activities to help build confidence and self-esteem while providing them with new experiences and learning opportunities that might not normally be available. By providing campers with the chance 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.
