Creatures in the Wild Summer Adventure Camps


This year's summer camps offer an exciting opportunity unlike any other in Central New York. 

Creatures in the Wild Summer Adventure Camps are a unique adventure. Our programs utilizes an emergent curriculum that allows the Creature Teachers to observe what interests a particular group of children and then assist them in exploring it further. 

What does this look like?

Every morning our group meets at the Woodchuck Hill Field & Forest Preserve and starts our day with a morning meeting to plan the day together. From there we follow a basic set rhythm of the day with lots of open play and exploration. As our week progresses we get to know the children attending and what they are passionate about. Each day the Creature Teachers come armed with activities, supplies and books to spark further interest and exploration. 

For one whole week your child will get to dive deep into their interests and take control over what they are learning. This form of learning is what truly sticks with a child. Our goal is to foster a love of learning, and a sense of wonder for nature. 

Please join us for this once in a lifetime adventure. Spaces are going to be limited this year so don’t wait.
