Summer is the perfect time to get outdoors and discover the wonders of  nature!

This year, we’re happy to announce that the “Go Wild” Day Camp is back for the Summer 2021 season. We can’t wait to share our summer with you all again. We have put new COVID-19 safety protocols in place to ensure the health and wellbeing of our campers and counselors, including individual basecamps for each age group, sanitization stations, and multifaceted health screenings.

Fenner’s Go Wild Day Camp provides campers the opportunities to experience the great outdoors right here in their own neighborhood. With a variety of programs ranging from Bugs & Slugs to Eco Art, campers will track insect trails, paint with pond water, investigate ecosystems and explore. But more importantly, they will make new friends, try new things and develop confidence in their capability.
