Camp WILD Summer Camps

Registration for 2023 Opens in January!

We offer six weeks of Camp WILD every summer at the Fayette Environmental Education Center, a project of the Southern Conservation Trust. Each week offers a different theme with fun games, activities, live animal encounters, and crafts so your camper can keep the fun going all summer long. In addition to nature-based themes, Camp WILD offers a unique Art Day every Wednesday to explore various aspects of nature and how it inspires us to create! Then on Fridays, we’ll wrap up the week with a Friday Fun Day Camp Out where campers will have a water war with the City of Fayetteville Fire Department, make messy s’mores by the campfire, and chill out with popsicles the way summers are meant to be enjoyed!
