We bring kids outside to learn and grow together, transforming summer into a season of learning, youth development, and outdoor adventure for low-income, Kansas City area youth.
Programs & Services:
- Summer residential camping experiences designed to increase summer learning opportunities and diminish the opportunity gap for low-income children.
- A diverse set of programs and activities that optimize the unique benefits of immersion in the natural world and building relationships in a camp setting to achieve measurable outcomes leading to lifelong personal and economic success.
- Year-round opportunities for group/school outdoor education and other experiences structured to promote, fund, or support the summer camp program.
Wildwood gives underserved youth transformational outdoor learning experiences through the support of community organizations, donors, and foundations. Wildwood programs are designed to deliver four key learning experiences:
- Overcoming Challenges
- Applying Science
- Building Community
- Learning Together
After more than 35 years of camping, team-building, environmental exploration and friendship-making, Wildwood Outdoor Education Center is proud of the many lives that have been changed, spirits strengthened, skills built and relationships forged on our 150 acres in Miami County, Kansas.
