City Wild Camp


Still searching for an interesting, unique camp for your adventurous kids to attend this August? You’re in luck!

LandHealth Institute and Fairmount Water Works introduce the pilot offering of City Wild day camp! This summer camp for kids ages 10-13 offers off-the-beaten-path adventures through Philly’s neighborhoods to explore nature in the urban environment. Every day is a new adventure to a different part of the city – we’ll dip our toes in the Delaware, go behind the scenes of Philly’s hidden infrastructure, hike through our urban forests, and capture all of our adventures through journaling and mixed media art projects.

Check out for details or call the LandHealth Institute at (267) 571-5750.
