Summer 2020 Updates
We will be closed June and July, 2020.
We are offering Personalized Summer STEAM Kits for at home learning and looking forward to camp in August.
We plan to be back in full swing for summer 2021.
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 summers. We aren't sure if this will happen in 2020.
Families, please provide your own sack lunches all other dates.
Truly Flexible Scheduling
Most Summers: 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: Due to COVID 19 we will be closed June and July. We plan to open in August with smaller session groups to accommodate health guidelines. We are offering STEAM Kits for at home learning all summer and planning for in-person and virtual camps in August.
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.
2020 we will be open August 3rd to Sept. 3rd with 2 and 3 week sessions and lower capacity to accommodate health and safety guidelines.
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.
2020 Only: FULL Refunds if we are unable to open upon request.
