Get Wild! Summer Day Camp

The summer is on it’s 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.

This summer marks the fourth annual GET WILD! summer environmental education camp.  Children will learn more about local ecosystems through play and exploration.  Games, hikes, gardening, crafts and out trips are the main activities lead by local Wildsight Golden educators. The camp runs weekly and provides after-camp-care to children 6-12.  This program is for those parents who want their children to be outside and come home stoked, dirty and happy.

Activities include: OUT-TRIPS!, nature stories, local hikes, bird-watching, community gardening, take home art from nature, sports, community public art projects and volunteering, fun environmental education lessons, music and drama, survival skills, swimming, campfire songs and games, and much more outdoor fun!
