Summer Camp 2019: July 29 - Aug 2

Calling Adventurers & Summer Fun Seekers!
Wildwood ALC Presents:
Into the Woods Summer Day Camp

Remember simple summers of playing in the creek, inventing games with friends & building forts? Kids’ lives are increasingly structured and scheduled, yet studies are clear that unstructured outdoor play with others leads to healthier & happier humans! Wildwood ALC is excited to offer a week-long day camp where kids can escape the pressures of modern life, immerse themselves in nature, and enjoy some classic summer fun.

Into the Woods Camp will provide the space and support to PLAY to your heart’s delight in a multi-age setting. Camp will take place at the beautiful & rustic Camp Sky Ranch and will offer a variety of down-and-dirty activities that inspire joy, creativity, and connection...such as exploring the creek, hiking, nature journaling, inventing creative games/free play, kickball, tie dying, scavenger hunts and zip-lining. There will also be indoor offerings such as light cooking, making meditation jars, lounging, games, yoga and crafting. Kids can follow their interests throughout the day, and are also welcome to bring their own ideas and activities to share with the group!

Wildwood ALC is a nonprofit, three-day per week, self-directed learning community in Watauga County that operates during the school year.
