Get Wild! Summer Day Camp

The summer is on its way and it’s time to Get Wild!

Get Wild’s mission is to inspire youth to connect with our community and nature through fun inclusive outdoor activities.

2019 marks the fifth annual GET WILD! summer outdoor environmental education camp for children 6-12 years old. Participants will learn more about local ecosystems through play and exploration. The camp runs weekly.

9 AM-3 PM with after camp care available 3-5 PM. This program is for those parents who want their children to be outside and come home stoked, dirty and happy.

Activities include:  nature discovery  and adventure games, local hikes, bird-watching, community gardening, take home art from nature, sports, community volunteering, music and drama, survival skills, swimming and much more outdoor fun!  Each week on Thursdays we go on a full day field trip to a local attraction such as Wapta Falls, Organic Sports Ranch, Cedar Lake and Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.

Camp dates for 2019:
July 2-5
July 8-12
July 15-19

Subsidies
Once again Wildsight Golden is offering to subsidize up to 5 children this summer to participate in the camp with a subsidy of $100 per child per summer to help defray the costs of the camp. This can be used to either put your child in camp for two whole days for free, or to reduce the costs of a week long registration to $90. If you would like to take advantage of this, write a note to Camp Coordinator Victoria Rozon at getwildcamp@gmail.com, explaining the reason why you would like the subsidy.
