Let’s explore everything Camp Wintergreen has to offer!
All weeks of camp incorporate STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math), so Campers get to explore literally and mentally!
We will go on several hikes to different waterfalls and overlooks, while learning important skills for outdoor survival, like setting up shelter and building a fire. The trails our Campers will be exploring showcase the wide diversity of terrain, natural habitat and animal life in our beautiful mountain setting.
Our campers will also build core science skills that explore the fundamental questions they want to know, while having fun with hands-on science.
Campers will discover there is more to a rock than a pretty “face,” as they uncover the true ingredients of rocks. There will be hands-on scientific experiments studying the geology of Wintergreen, followed by rock hounding and mineral collecting.
Our Camper chefs will focus on different culinary cuisines from countries around the globe. Campers will learn to follow both simple and complex recipes while working as a team, pardon the pun, but STEAM applies to cooking too.
Your Camper’s creativity is very important to us. Our Campers will explore their artistic abilities while learning different drawing techniques, painting skills and the art history behind it all. Children will explore their creative sides, get inspired by famous artworks, and learn to express themselves withwatercolor, clay, pastels and more. Focused on balancing technical instruction with freedom of self-expression, be ready for an art exhibition at the end of the week for parents to enjoy!
