P8210525fireman Maple Valley's popular 15th annual CAMP WILD,  Summer Day Camp for children ages 6-11 returns this summer. 

New and returning campers will be amazed with all the fun things to do, and the new friends they will quickly make. Parents can trust staff to continue to emphasize the importance of safety, leadership, and communications while keeping FUN, FUN, and more FUN.

At CAMP WILD, campers are introduced to new age-appropriate games each week and activities that are based on a fun weekly theme. We can’t give away all of our secrets but we can say that archery, scavenger hunts, multiple field trips, arts & crafts, geocaching, hiking, guest speakers, swimming, slip & slide, beach art, and field games are only a few of the fun things planned this summer

Two action-packed field trips await campers each week and are normally scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday!
