Summer Camp for Bridge to Nature Families

Summer with WYP

Thank you for being a part of Wilderness Youth Project! 

You’re invited to summer camp! Nature connection makes summer better for kids. Time in nature makes kids happier and healthier. Wilderness Youth Project connects kids to nature in small groups guided by expert caring mentors.

We have saved spots in our summer 2021 camps for families who participated in our Bridge to Nature 2020/21 school year programs or during a past summer. We’d love to have your children join us. 

We are able to offer each child 1 week of summer camp until all of the spots are filled.  Then we will place your family on a waiting list and contact you if a space opens up. This allows us to offer the summer camp experience to as many families as possible. Thanks to community fundraising, we offer scholarships at many levels. We will work directly with families to offer an option that is comfortable for your household income.
