Wildwood Outdoor Education Campus
Wildwood’s mission is to bring kids outside to learn and grow together, transforming summer into a season of learning, youth development, and outdoor adventure for low-income Kansas City area youth.
Target Market: Greater Kansas City and surrounding areas
Target Customer: School-aged boys and girls in high poverty schools/neighborhoods
Target Programs & Services:
- Summer residential camping experiences designed to increase summer learning opportunities and diminish the opportunity gap for low-income children—an impact multiplied through year-to-year retention of participants and progressive opportunities to learn, grow and lead
- A diverse set of programs and activities that optimize the unique benefits of immersion in the natural world and building relationships in a camp setting to achieve measurable outcomes leading to lifelong personal and economic success
- Year-round opportunities for group/school outdoor education and other experiences structured to promote, fund, or support the summer camp program.
One of Wildwood’s current priorities is to improve physical property and assets to provide an environment conducive to transformational learning. In addition to current maintenance needs, Wildwood is looking for design volunteers to help prioritize, envision, and create marketable concepts that include but are not limited to the items below. Imagery and concepts will be presented as part of Wildwood’s 2017 capital campaign.
