Calling Seekers Wild's summer programs "summer camps" doesn't accurately describe what your child will experience. Seekers Wild "summer camps" at their worst are a week filled with fun memorable experiences different from other camps. At their best, Seekers Wild camps create an adventure that will increase participants' confidence, competence in new skills, awareness, patience, knowledge and understanding of the natural world, and overall quality of life. At Seekers Wild your child's instructor won't be thinking about what they're going to do that evening or checking their status on their phone's. Seekers Wild instructors are fully engaging your child with as much enthusiasm about the topics covered as the participants.
