2019 Camp is FULL!

No new campers this summer. Current campers may still purchase extra days.

Now that Chico Unified campers have returned to school, new campers with different school schedules are welcome to join us.

Give them a Summer

of Learning in Freedom.

They work hard all school year. Give them a summer of fun, friendships and good old fashioned playful memories.

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) activities all in hands on, project based style for campers to choose from. 

Fun, friendship, science, art, nature, adventure and park and creek exploration come together in a fully child choice environment with respectful, caring adults sharing their skills.

  • Camp Wild Heart is hosted and presented by Thrive. 

  • Open to all TK-8th grade students (ages 4 years and 9 months to 13).

  • FREE breakfast and lunch provided by Chico's Summer Nutrition Program (open to students in all income levels). Served June 10th to August 8th, 2019. Families, please provide your own sack lunches all other dates. 

Truly Flexible Scheduling

Virtual Punch Cards for FULL FLEXIBILITY because we know summer plans change often. Choose the number of days you want on your punch card and use your days any day we are open.


June 3rd to August 22nd, 2019 (12 weeks)

Monday thru Thursday 9:30am to 4:30pm


and Closed Thursday, July 4th and Thursday, August 8th, 2019.

Camp is open 9:30am to 4:30pm with main activity options between 10:45am and 3:15pm.


Students must arrive no later than 10:45am and be picked up no earlier than 3:15pm (unless other arrangements have been made).

We don't oversell so once you purchase a punch card campers will never be turned away as long they arrive by 10:45am (may arrive as early at 9:30am).

Days do NOT need to be consecutive. Mix and match any days we are open during the summer.

No refunds or roll over for unused days. All days must be used the summer they are purchased.
