Our Programs

Big Kids Special Interest Camps

Farm to Table Cooking

Week of July 29
Summer is the perfect time to explore the culinary arts. What better way to do so than in the company of friends. Farm to Camp provides our young culinary artists the chance to explore the world of organic farming combined with cooking.  Campers will maintain and harvest produce grown at the WFS Organic Garden to be used throughout the week. Field trips to local farmers markets will provide campers with other fresh and healthy ingredients to supplement delicious recipes. The week will culminate with a picnic lunch at our off campus garden site at Bellevue State Park.

Extra, Extra Write All About It!

Weeks of July 15 and August 5 
“Extra Extra Write All About It!” is designed for campers who want to express themselves by creating their own weekly newspaper. Whether it be through poetry, creative story writing, interviewing, comic strip drawing, or making riddles, campers will have the opportunity to explore the many facets of journalism from the initial phase of gathering ideas, to getting ideas on paper, proofreading and finally publication and distribution. Activities will include pre-writing exercises, graphic organizers, brainstorming, outlining, dictation, drafting, revision and publishing. Throughout the week, campers will work to publish a weekly newspaper available for all campers, staff and parents to enjoy.

Service Learning 4th and 5th Grade

Week of July 8
Service Camp is geared to present campers with a diversity of opportunities for service and outreach in the broader community. To this end, directors and counselors will guide students through projects that will give back to the community in many ways. The program will include visits to the WFS community garden, Delaware Food Bank, Lutheran Community Services and Brandywine Creek State Park. Other projects will be added depending on community needs at the time of the program. 

Rocks and Minerals

Week of June 24
Campers will put their mining hats on and learn all about the rocks and minerals that can be found in our area, as well as gems that can be found around the world. Students will participate in a nature hike to Alapocas Run, mining for their own gemstones/fossils/shark teeth, interactive identification lessons, and rock art.
