Camp Wild

Pond sampling and water quality studies are one of the many activities that we will be doing at Camp WILD. Our learning is always fun, always interactive and student directed and very often directly supports STEM. Next generation science standards and common core are embedded in our camp program. Yep, learning through play while building new neuropathways, it’s how we roll. Registration for our summer Camp Wild Programs are posted in the spring and fill quickly!

Farm Club

Farm Club is a great opportunity for First through Fifth grade students to experience hands-on weekly nature education. We focus our lessons and activities around gardening. Past topics encompass a wide-range of nature themes, including, Vermi-composting, Bees, Owls, Pallet Recycling, and more. We hold four to six week sessions in the fall, winter, and spring. Two certified teacher leaders and two junior counselors are present at meetings creating unique small group opportunities. This allows the students to get the most out of our center-based hands-on learning. Most sessions have a take-home project that inspires young naturalists to continue their thinking and learning at home.

Field Trips

Field trips to the farm, also known as our Learning Adventures, were created to give our participants a chance to experience nature based education. These sessions are focused around broad themes and lead learners to think about topics such as Trees, Trails, and Tracks. Sessions are age appropriate and have hands-on learning that incorporates literature, movement, and music. We will integrate outdoor experiences and current curriculum. Many sessions will have a take-home project and extension activities will be offered for teachers or families to further the discussion and learning back in the classroom or at home.
