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) most of summer.
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.
Summer 2020: We are offering STEAM Kits for at home learning all summer.
We plan to be back in full swing summer 2021.
We are normally open the 10 weeks of Chico Unified's Summer plus 2 extra weeks for those with varied schedules.
Monday thru Thursday 9:30am to 4:30pm
CLOSED FRIDAYS and the 4th of July.
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.
Standard Rule: No refunds or roll over for unused days. All days must be used the summer they are purchased.
