What Wildfolk is:

  • We are a project-based, child-centered day camp with themed sessions and unique, one-of-a-kind traditions

  • We offer a variety of programs for children in Pre-K- 10th grade (starting at 4+) from two locations (West Hollywood and Valley)

  • We prioritize process over product-- yes we offer cool electives and activities, but don't expect any showy, cookie-cutter products coming home. We care more about how campers felt while making a project, how they collaborated with their peers, and how creating it helped them grow as a human

  • We hire compassionate, mature educators and specialists as "Camp Guides" and our Leadership Team are comprised of highly experienced youth development professionals. Meet our Wildfolk crew here

  • We help kids facilitate friendship making- it's an important skill and one of our main goals at Wildfolk that every kid make a pal 

  • We offer balance: indoor and outdoor activities, focused and active play, collaborative and independent activities, etc 

  • We are passionate about old-school camp spirit and take childhood memory-making and joy very seriously-- your kids will go home singing camp songs you grew up with and chanting their Team's cheer until your entire household knows it by heart

  • We are a camp that is about the kids first and you'll see this echoed in everything we do

  • We are hands-on, experiential, and mess-friendly! Your kids will go home dirty, sticky, and happy!

What Wildfolk is not...

  • We are not a drop-in style camp that operates without plans for each registered child to be there that session (your kid's attendance matters- they are part of a team for that session!)

  • We are not a specialty camp and we're really not focused on campers leaving camp with a super well-made, fancy "thing"

  • We are not a fancy boutique camp that can offer every family a detailed rundown of how much your child ate, went to the bathroom, etc. We care about each child in our care, but we want to set reasonable expectations

  • We are not a daycare or local recreation camp that hires inexperienced tweens and teens to supervise campers (we DO have amazing GIT and Junior Leader Staff programs and believe in fostering teen leadership-- but these are support crew! They are still learning and under the direction of our Camp Guides and Leadership Team (all experienced adults)
