Get Wild! Summer Day Camp

Get Wild Camp is over for 2022 now!

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

2023 will be the ninth annual GET WILD! summer outdoor environmental education camp for children 6-10 years old.

Participants will learn more about local ecosystems through play and exploration. The camp will run 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 2023 TBA

Rates per week 
Regular rate $210
Daily Drop-in rate $57 (depends on room in the camp)
(or Daily drop-in rate on Out-trip Thursdays $79)

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. 

We gratefully acknowledge the funding and assistance so far in 2022 from:
