Parkway-Rockwood Community Education and Babler State Park have collaborated to provide children with a unique outdoor summer day camp experience! Located inside the Babler State Park at the OEC Outpost (former Babler State Park Stables), BablerWiLD Day Camp is designed to encourage campers to jump in and learn about nature firsthand through daily exploration and discovery. Fun and unique activities encourage creativity, curiosity, physical activity and hands-on learning. Camp is a great place to make new friends, practice responsibility, build self-confidence and develop new skills. Each week is dedicated to a theme and all activities such as crafts, hikes, games, science experiments, outdoor skills, teambuilding activities and environmental lessons are focused around that theme. Information for each individual WiLd Outdoor Weeks is available through the links to the left. Come and see what BablerWiLD has to offer!

SUMMER 2019 INFORMATION COMING SOON!
Camp Store is available during the WiLD Outdoor Weeks only. When registering online you will have the opportunity to make a second purchase to add $10 in your camper's store account for each week they will attend. Each
child will then have an opportunity to purchase one snack, one drink,
and one toy at the end of the camp day. Camp Store is an optional part of camp. If
you choose not to participate it will not effect your child's ability
to have a snack. All campers receive a snack in the morning and campers
who do not purchase a snack in the afternoon will be offered an
alternative snack. Any remaining balances will be donated towards future BablerWiLD programming unless a refund is specifically requested. While campers will never be required to hold on to any physical currency, this is a great opportunity to help teach your camper responsibility and the value of money.
