About our Wolves Day Camp

Rising 1st and 2nd grade campers will have a few more choices in their activities in Day Camp, as well as a greater variety of field trip locations. They experience the outdoors daily, learn through nature exploration, STEM, music, dance, art, sports, story time, water games, field trips, and carefully conceived, self-directed play.

The activities of each week are tied to a unique, exciting theme, are led by qualified teachers and assisted by energetic, young interns. In addition to the daily activities, there will be a weekly field trip on Thursdays.
