ABOUT FORT WONDER

The mission of Fort Wonder Summer Camps is to foster the intellectual, physical, emotional, and character development of our campers through safe and engaging summer camps.  

Our programs provide campers with a classic summer camp atmosphere that focuses on memory-making, peer relationships, and community.  Our curriculum helps campers access their creativity and sense of wonder as a tool for education and engagement, ultimately creating unique, age-appropriate learning opportunities for each participant.
