All Kids Outside Again!

This summer marks 19 years that Wild Earth will get kids outdoors in the Hudson Valley.

At Wild Earth, all of the senses are engaged as campers meet local plants and animals, learn wilderness skills, create natural crafts, and build deep connections with friends and inspiring adult and teen mentors.

Guided by patterns we’ve observed in nature, we begin each day by gathering in the woods through songs, expressing gratitude, and finding new ways to play. We form smaller groups and set up camp in the forest by building fire pits and shelters. Our instructors tailor activities to the interests of the campers, fostering curiosity and guiding learning through skillful questions, opportunities for appropriate risk-taking and empowering challenges.

We’re committed to being accessible to all. Financial aid is available.

If you need financial aid, be sure to register to hold your space! We cannot hold a space without your registration. Click here to read our summer camp registration policies and Q&A.

Our camps often start waitlisting as early as February. Don’t despair!

We now use a rolling admissions process; additional spaces are added to our camps throughout the spring. If you find a waitlist, please join our waitlist at no cost and our staff will reach out to you when a space becomes available.
