Please join us this March and get Wildwood ready for summer camp and school groups! We have a variety of available projects for all members of the family. Please join us for a morning shift (9-12) or an afternoon shift (12-3).

The projects will be finalized closer to the event date, but last year’s projects included:

  1. firewood collection
  2. gravel work
  3. testing tents to check for holes, missing pieces, etc.
  4. setting up the gaga ball pit
  5. preparations for a Wildwood garage sale
  6. art projects (for kids 5-15)
  7. trail cleanup
  8. cabin cleanup
  9. garden prep

Campers and children age 5-14 are welcome, but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Teens aged 15-17 must be accompanied by a responsible adult (up to 6 teens/adult). 

Lunch and all necessary tools will be provided. (If you have an extra wheelbarrow, we’d be thankful to borrow it for the day!) Please wear weather-appropriate clothing (that you don’t mind getting dirty) and closed-toe shoes.

Welcome, Americorps VISTAs!

Welcome, Americorps VISTAs!

This year, Wildwood has been lucky to welcome two excellent Americorps VISTA members, Shannon and Katie! Shannon and Katie will be with Wildwood for the next 12 months, increasing Wildwood’s fundraising, volunteering, programming, and camp recruitment and retention capacity.

More specifically, Shannon will be building new camp programs, leveling up our staff training, and planning new ways to recruit and retain camp staff and campers. Katie will be re-building Wildwood’s volunteer program, supporting individual fundraising through community events, and crafting new PR strategy for Wildwood.

They are both making a huge difference at Wildwood already, and we are so excited to have them on board! Welcome to the team!
