Some kids play easily with others, some walk intrepidly into adventure, while others may fear the unfamiliar. At Schoolhouse of Wonder, every kid matters. Each person, young or old, is different. We love that. Every Schoolhouse camp provides a unique environment of kindness, respect, and learning.Our award-winning, nature-based outdoor camps have different themes each season, but they are all inspired by our core values. Low camper to staff ratios allow campers a sense of freedom while providing a safe and nurturing environment. Campers (8-12 years old), Counselors in Training, and staff can also challenge themselves to grow and learn by earning Growth Rings in areas like fire making, whittling, plant lore, and snake identification and handling.Oh, and by days end, well return your kids dirty, tired, and happy. Guaranteed.

My 10-year old son first attended a SHOW track-out camp in April 2016 in Umstead Park in Raleigh. He enjoyed it so much he wanted to go back for a week-long summer camp. Both camps he chose to attend focused on whittling.I appreciated the hours went from 8:15a - 5:30p - which is much more accommodating for working parents.The counselors seemed fun and caring. The kids did a lot of games (e.g., capture the flag) and went on long hikes, which my son really enjoyed. (Funny... I cannot get him to go on hikes in Umstead with me, though! Kudos to SHOW!) At the end of the week, parents were invited to participate in a "circle time" activity (my term... cannot remember what they called it), which my son said they were told was based on a Native American practice. Kids and parents each took turns talking about what they appreciated about their week. It was a great way to practice gratitude.At $289, the camp cost a bit more than other similar camps held in Umstead Park.
