June & July | Half-day Camps

What’s the best thing about summer camp? That everyone can join the fun! This week we kick-off camp with activities and projects that everyone can enjoy, and give a snapshot of all of the cool things your camper(s) can expect this summer at Wisconsin Youth Company. Campers will make new friends and revisit with old friends as we play large group games, get messy with some arts & crafts, and celebrate the start to a great summer!

We’ll also take time to show kindness to our Earth as we visit a local farm and learn about gardening.
