The Wylde Center offers unique camp experiences to families in and around the Decatur area.

During our Winter, Summer and Fall camps, your child will explore this urban setting complete with native plants, garden, resident chickens and native wildlife. Campers will enjoy planting, tasting fresh organic fruits and veggies from the garden, searching the garden for insects, birds, frogs and salamanders, creating engaging and thoughtful crafts, caring for our live chickens, playing games, exploring the creek, visiting the Cob House, having free play, making S’mores around a campfire and other fun, educational activities.

About our camps

Our camps are led by two highly trained Wylde Center educators. Cumulatively, our education team has over 40 years of experience teaching and leading outdoor education programs in areas such as science, agriculture, history, art and language arts. With the wealth of knowledge and diversity of backgrounds on our team, there is truly something for every camper!

Camp registration is first come, first served, and there is a 10 camper limit to maintain a low camper to educator ratio. Spots fill up quickly, so register soon!

Covid-19 Statement

Due to COVID-19, students and staff will be masked at all times (except when eating and drinking). Camp will be almost entirely outdoors, with the only exceptions being to use the restroom and in the case of inclement weather. All indoor spaces do have air purifiers running. Indoor spaces and teaching materials will be cleaned on a daily basis.

We are closely monitoring COVID-19 school numbers and will continue to do so over the next few weeks. While it is our intent to run camp, safety is our priority so if the decision is made to cancel you will be refunded entirely--camp will only be cancelled if we feel it is absolutely necessary. Thank you for your understanding!

Camp Safety and Security

The safety and security of our campers is always our first priority. There is a CPR and First Aid certified counselor present for each day of camp, and we have the following safety measure in place:

  • All Wylde Center staff members, including camp counselors, have current background checks.
  • We maintain a small ratio of campers to adults, and Wylde Center campers are never left unattended. Counselors perform headcounts regularly and always before and after changing locations.
  • The entire camp site is walked before camp week starts to identify any hazards and address them before the start of camp.
  • Outside visitors to our camp locations are limited during camp hours.
