Schoolhouse of Wonder offers year-round outdoor camps, field trips, leadership training, and family activities.
Update 5/29/2020: Although in-person programming remains canceled through August 21, we are thrilled to announce a new program for teens: the Gray Squirrel Society, a teen-centered, online community to develop leadership and life skills.
Camps (Available in Durham, Wake, and Orange Counties)
Every Schoolhouse camp provides a unique environment of kindness, respect, and learning. Our outdoor day camps have different themes each season, but they are all inspired by our underlying values. Our award-winning camps offer a low camper to staff ratio that allows a sense of freedom while providing a safe and nurturing environment.
