Wildcat Youth Camp 2019


Wildcat Kids Summer Camp 2019

Make this summer one of lasting memories for your child by enrolling in our Wildcat Kids Camp. Wildcat Kids is a traditional summer camp for children from 5 years through 5th grade. Each exciting week is packed with games, crafts, swimming, climbing, skating, special events and Eco Camp. Eco camp is going to teach your child about the environment by using fun games and hands on activities. NMU is the perfect setting for summer camp, featuring a centrally located base site for camp and indoor and outdoor spaces to accommodate a wide range of activities.

Your child’s camp experience is our #1 priority, so our focus is on teaching new skills, promoting teamwork, encouraging sportsmanship and making sure that we understand and recognize the unique abilities and interests of your child. Join us all week long or pick a day or two that best fits your busy schedule. Full days for summer vary by camp.  Programmed activity time is 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Early morning and late afternoon times will be used as kids’ choice time.
