Wildwood Camp is off to a great start! Our first evening was a success with a s’more treasure hunt and campfires at individual units.
New morning programming this summer includes Nature Groups. In these blocks, campers have been exploring the wonders of Wildwood in a whole new way. Our youngest campers in the Forest Group hit the ground running with tree identification and discussions about how trees move food up and down their trunks and branches. Earth Day Group campers have been talking about stewardship of our natural environment.
Unit staff got creative during Tuesday’s Unit Night with fun activities such as Capture the Flag in the sand pits, adjacent birthday and beach parties, and Olympics and soccer on the activity field. Unit nights are a great opportunity for campers to bond with their age groups.
Wednesday evening brought a downpour of rain which resulted in an amazing indoor evening program of “grab bag” improv storytelling. We’ll admit, campers had so much fun they got to bed a little late last night.
We are happy to report that while the rain continues, our spirits have not dampened and camp programming carries on with creativity and zest.
Expect camper photos soon—we had technical difficulties with the blog this week and we really appreciate everyone’s patience as new staff learn the ropes and work out the kinks in our processes. Rest assured that everyone is having a blast!
