Elementary School Summer Program

We welcome students from any school to come get a taste of the Wildwood experience for one or more weeks this summer.

Many of our extremely popular specialist programs are back: Art Studio classes, Science Lab classes, Minecraft Mania, Robotics...the list goes on and on. And, of course, our four-week Wildwood Summer Theater program, specifically for elementary school students entering grades 2–5.      

All of our programs are full day, from 9 a.m.–3 p.m. There are classes for students from 1st through 5th grade.
