Get Wild! Summer Day Camp

Get Wild Camp is Over for 2021, but we will be back in 2022!

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

2021 marked the seventh annual GET WILD! summer outdoor environmental education camp for children 6-10 years old. Participants learned more about local ecosystems through play and exploration. The camp ran weekly, 9–3 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 schedules for 2022 will be announced in April or May 2022.

Regular pricing is $200 per week or $55 per day or $75 for Field Trip Thursdays!

Registration will be starting in April or May

Staff will be announced.

Normally, Wildsight Golden has subsidies this summer so all children can participate in camp.  If you would like to take advantage of this, write a note to the Camp Coordinator. (NOTE, this program will depend on funding in 2022)

We gratefully acknowledge the funding and assistance in 2021 from:
 

And Sabrina Curtis, Artist!
