Camp Wildfolk

Type: Arts & Crafts, Creative, Day Camp, Maker

Description:

Camp Wildfolk is a fun, modern twist on traditional Day Camp, with a growth-centered and project-based approach. We offer an experiential, explorative experience, where campers are given the autonomy to create their summer adventure by choosing between class options within each “Sphere of Fun” rotation, while still having the safety and accountability of a traditional camper group with Tribe Guides.

All Campers go on a Beach Field trip the 1st Wednesday of each 2-week Session and our oldest campers (Ages 8+ & GITs)  go on an Adventure Field Trip (to places like Knott’s & Hurricane Harbor) the 2nd Wednesday of each Session.

Four Spheres of Fun: 1. Movement & Teambuilding, 2. Creativity & Expression, 3. Innovation & Exploration, and 4. Group Projects

At Camp Wildfolk, we’re about process over product. We love open-ended activities and provocations, where camper’s ideas and expression takes the lead. Our camp day is hands-on, messy, camper-centered, guided from the side, and encourages camper voice and choice, as much as possible. Campers at Wildfolk have the opportunity to explore, forge deep peer connections, take healthy risks, bond with compassionate adults, develop autonomy, and be authentically themselves.

Ages 4-12/// Guides-in-Training Ages 13-17/// Four 2-week sessions from June 19- Aug 11///  Two Mini-Camp Bonus Weeks Aug 14- 25 Extended Day from 7:45am-5:45pm /// Spring Mini-Camp April 3-14

Steve & Kate’s Camp

Type: Arts & Crafts, Creative, Day Camp

Description:

Kids come into this world brimming with curiosity, wonder and creative potential. Unfortunately, we often squash that potential by telling kids what to do, and what to learn.

At Steve & Kate’s, we believe that when you trust kids, they develop the confidence to trust themselves, and learn to use their own judgment. So we built a summer camp that puts kids in charge. Because unlike traditional schools, summer gives us the freedom to reinvent learning in a way that allows kids to make their own choices – and, of course, a few mistakes along the way.

Driven by this belief, we’ve built our summer camp to put kids in the driver’s seat of a world of possibilities. So whether your child is a natural-born storyteller with a love for animation, or a budding chef, or a hacker-in-training, or a dance machine, they can dive into their passions in a world free from adult judgments and expectations.

After 37 years, we are still obsessed with reinventing every summer. Because if we’ve learned one thing, it’s that when you think like a child, anything is possible.
