Go Wild!

Learn skills, have fun and make a difference

Go Wild is just one of our low-cost programs that gets youth outdoors and teaches them how to be leaders and conservation stewards.

This camp is an opportunity to introduce youth aged 13 to 17 to a variety of outdoor activities that tie into important lessons on wildlife, ecology, and ethics in a fun and supportive environment. It’s perfect for kids who want to learn more about nature, wildlife and how they can make a difference!

Go Wild gives youth  hands-on opportunities to develop outdoor and leadership skills they will use throughout their lives. At the camp, youth are taught by experts in their field in a safe and supportive atmosphere and are provided the opportunity to work on a conservation project unique to their camp experience. Each camp curriculum is region-specific and tailored to the local area, so no two Go Wild camps are the same.

Some of the skills learned at the Go Wild! camp include:

  • How to build a shelter in the woods
  • How to build a fire
  • Archery, firearms safety and hunting ethics
  • Canoeing and boat safety
  • Angling and fish identification
  • Importance of ecosystem biodiversity
  • Leadership skills
