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.

2021 marks 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 dates for 2021:

July 5–9 one space left

July 12–16 one space left

July 19–23  FULL

July 26–29 FULL

August 3–6 FULL

August 9–13 FULL

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