Wake Track-Out Camps & Discovery Days

In our Wake Track-Out Camps, we know that 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.

Visit our Wake Summer Camps section to find Track Out camps taking place from June 3rd- August 23rd, 2019. 

Oh, and by day’s end, we’ll return your kids dirty, tired, and happy. Guaranteed
