4/13/2023 UPDATE: Due to projected spring flooding our basecamps will be underwater and very soggy for much of the summer. For now Urban Adventure Day Camp Registration is ON HOLD while we reconfigure to several mini adventures (half day) rather than three day sessions.
Campers ages 6 and older will adventure with Miss Michelle throughout the Fargo, ND community to gain self confidence, find nature in urban settings and explore their community more deeply than can be done looking out a vehicle window or attending an event. Each session will have a designated drop off and pick up spot (basecamp) and a radius the group will stay within. Each session starts with a review of safety including situational awareness, traffic safety as a pedestrian, basic outdoor skills, and water safety. Once everyone is oriented the campers will work together to determine the plan for their time together.
Wild About Play will supply each camper with an adventure journal, basic art supplies, a map of the area we are exploring that session, and basic outdoor observation tools (binoculars, magnifying glass, compass, guidebooks, and rain poncho). These supplies will stay with Wild About Play at the end of each session. Campers will add a water bottle, a packed lunch and snacks, a change of clothes and personal care supplies like sunscreen and bug spray.
Maximum Group Size will be 10 campers per session.
