Outrageously Fun for All!
Camp Woolman Values
Non-Violent Communication (NVC)
Wombat Camp (age 9-14)
Where else can you join a band of superheroes, perform a song about purple lasagna (and get a standing ovation), tye-dye your socks, make new friends, learn about bugs, and jump in a beautiful river… all in the same day?
Days at camp are full of fun, laughter, friends, food, and choices. We do lots of things together – eating meals, playing whole-camp games, singing during opening & closing circle, going to Mel’s Pond. There’s also times when you get to decide what you want to do – which activity you want to sign up for, which game you want to play, or what you want to do during free time. Counselors are always hosting activities, making sure everyone has a good and safe time. But watch out! Your counselors might turn into pirates and hijak yer cabin mates and then you’d have to go rescue them!
Other special events we do at camp include Variety Show Night, Jugs (Capture the Flag with some Woolman twists), Barbeques at Mel’s Pond, and Tie-Dyeing. It doesn’t matter who you are at school or where you are from, at camp the only person you have to impress is yourself!
Teen Leadership Camp (age 13-17)
Teen Leadership Camp sessions offer 13 – 17 year olds the chance to engage with wilderness challenges, exercise leadership on multiple levels, and practice skills vital to becoming independent backpackers and trip leaders – all while forming a truly unique and unforgettable community. Teens will go on two 3-day backpacking trips, on which they will learn important trail skills from their counselors, including trail cooking, topo map reading, orienteering, and trip planning.
Finally, in each TLC session there are always endless opportunities to cook, dance, play, swim, art and craft, and whatever else we can come up with in our breaks from hiking. Summer after summer we watch our teens become independent and confident hikers, empathetic and engaged community members, and we see them shine their brightest in the company of strong friendships, stunning mountain views, and life-long memories.
