Rooted in Adventure. Rooted in Appalachia.

Wild Day Camp

Wild Day Camp

Four days of fun and adventure where we'll explore nature through a new and unique lens each day.

Trip Overview

We’ll tour the spectacular wildlands of Tucker County. We’ll get to know these places through adventures, curiosity, and lots of games! We’ll wander in the woods, play in the rain, and look for wild plants and animals while getting to know each other. This trip is for young children who have an interest in the outdoors and want to learn and play games. Previous Wild Day Camps have explored different nearby ecosystems such as forests, meadows, lakes, and creeks. 

We can’t wait for Wild Day Camp! In 2023, our two Wild Day Camps will run concurrently with our Adventure Day Camps, providing experiences for kids ages 5-8 and 9-11 and 11-13.

 Hours: Drop off between 8:30am-9am; Pick up at 3pm
