Special Summer Camp Programs
Special or PLUS summer camp programs are designed for those campers who want to improve their skills beyond our regular schedule. For ice hockey players, there are a bi-weekly trips to the local ice rink where campers can sharpen their skills for the upcoming season. The rink is only minutes away from camp and we reserve ice time after dinner. For tennis enthusiasts or those looking for extra lessons on the courts, our Tennis Plus program offers focused one-on-one and small group lessons. For the avid golfer, there are weekly trips to local 18 hole courses. Weekly rock climbing trips are also offered to campers looking to tackle the great outdoors.
The last of our special programs is our Father/Son post camp. This is where dads join their sons during the last weekend of camp to let loose and take part in all of our camp activities. Be it baseball, hockey, sailing, water skiing, or even fishing, dads get to do it all with their sons. Since it is a time when sons can show their fathers their new skills and newly gained confidence, it has become one of our most popular programs. We must admit that the dads probably have more fun than the boys! The program is also open to full families looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of back home.
- Ice Hockey - Wildwood is happy to once again offer our Ice Hockey Program for the 2019 summer. Campers will skate up to ten times at the Bridgton Ice Hockey Arena. Each session will include a half an hour lesson devoted to skating and shooting drills with an hour long game to follow. All ages are invited to participate in this exciting program. During games, we will match lines, so that ages and abilities will be equal on the ice at all times. Proper equipment must be worn. This includes: helmets, hockey gloves, shin guards, elbow pads, a cup and supporter, and skates. There will be NO RENTALS. The cost of the 2018 Ice Hockey Program is $500.
- Golf - Camp Wildwood is proud to feature its own 4 hole, par 14 golf course. For the campers that play at least once or twice a month, or need a little more of a golfing challenge, the “GOLF PLUS” program is for you! Campers will play at the local golf club up to ten times over the course of the summer. The cost of this program is $450. Campers are not required to bring their own clubs to camp in order to participate in Golf Plus.
- Tennis Plus - Our Tennis Academy offers private lessons at Camp Wildwood to players of all ages and skill levels that want to have a more personalized training in addition to their daily group classes. Private lessons are suited to all players who are looking to dramatically improve their game. Our highly trained coaches are perfect for those looking to improve their techincal, mental and tactical skills. The goal is to bring professional teaching to Camp Wildwood. A six pack of private lessons is $300.
- Rock Climbing - Our 2019 climbing program offers campers a unique opportunity to explore the world of traditional rock climbing in a natural environment. Over the course of five Sundays, campers will travel about an hour from Wildwood to explore the legendary granite cliffs of New Hampshire’s White Mountain National Forest. We have teamed up with expert climbing guides from the International Mountain Climbing School in North Conway, NH to provide campers with an experience of a lifetime that blends fun, adventure, and positive personal growth. The cost for one trip up (and down!) the mountain is $125.
