Get WIld! Summer Day Camp

In 2015 Wildsight Golden launched our GET WILD! Summer Day Camp. 

Get Wild’s mission is to inspire youth to connect with our community and nature through fun inclusive outdoor activities.
Last year our camp was a great success, with lots of happy participants.  We are currently organizing Get Wild! Summer Day camps for 2016 & have a tentative start date of July 4th with camps running for 6 weeks.  

Here’s a list of all the great sites the day campers visited last year:
