Wildwood – Summer 2015 Looking Back (and ahead to 2016!)

It is hard to believe that it has been about a month since the last day of the 2015 Wildwood summer camp season. We are so fortunate to have finished off the season with an incredibly strong Family Camp 3, and a very positive staff send-off.

In total, we served over 550 campers with fun and rewarding experiences in our Overnight, Leaders-In-Training, and Teen Adventure Trip programs and 50 families at Family Camp! It has been an amazing few years for us at Wildwood as enrollment numbers and enthusiasm for the program have continued to grow. We believe that camps like Wildwood, where campers can escape from technology and learn to appreciate the connections between people and nature, are more important than ever.

Some highlights from this summer include:

  • A new food service partnership with Sodexo, whose hard work received great reviews from campers and staff!
  • The addition of three new Treks for teens looking for more outdoor adventures!
  • The Leaders-In-Training developed and facilitated a service project to create a new outdoor education area for activity groups. This new spot, dubbed “Whitman’s Woods”, was incredibly popular and used by many IGs and DGs!
  • New IGs like “Forensics”, provided campers fun new ways to learn and connect with nature and the outdoors.
