International & Visiting Campers
Firstly, we are so excited that you may be joining us in Los Angeles in the near future!
We LOVE having campers join us at Wildfolk from other countries! It provides a unique learning experience for both our local campers, and those visiting. Thank you for considering us!
Here are some responses to questions you may have...
Knowledge of English
While some knowledge of English makes for a more comfortable, smooth transition, we've also had campers with zero English knowledge, and we managed to get them integrated into camp life in a short time.
One of our Camp Intentions- The 7 C's- is Community-Minded & it's at the foundation of all that we do. Our Guides are trained and experienced in helping to support our campers in creating their own Tribe culture, within their group. And a part of that culture is to embrace our diversity, celebrate our unique, authentic selves, and be a kind and compassionate member of the tribe.
The LA Experience
At Camp Wildfolk, your child will have a chance to be a part of a progressive, child-centered program that aims to help your child explore their interests and expand their confidence in expressing the things that make them authentically who they are! They will form connections with American children & possibly children from other countries, too. They will explore, play, experiment, try, risk, fail, laugh, & HAVE A BALL!
We've had campers visit us from:
china, korea, saudi arabia, Dubai, london, Paris, India, & beyond!
Here's what a few of our International families had to say about their experience at Camp Wildfolk:
"The girls are having a fabulous time. They have been going to multiple camps in both London and Dubai and this is their favourite. – Shahnaz Q.
"At the beginning of the first week, I worried a little about my kids because they are not good at English and new environments. As time passed, I found my children were getting to be very excited. Our kids couldn’t wait for Monday to go back to camp after each week ended. The camp was very well organized, too." -Jeewoon S.
"ls it too early to sign-up for next summer? My boys just loved it & it was really good for them. I definitely want to bring them back!" - Xihui Z.
