Naturally Curious Summer Camp
July 4 - August 30, 2023
The goal of our Naturally Curious Summer camp is to offer experiences and opportunities that will create a love of learning, love of nature, build their confidence and provide them with the knowledge that camp experiences are fun!
Our camps have a strong nature focus which provides your child with a holistic environment in which to play and learn! Nature is proven to calm the mind and de-stress the body; providing regular opportunities to be successful; develop their self-esteem; all with hands-on learning experiences!
Your child will spend the day creating new friendships, developing a love of
learning, spending time outdoors in their community, spending their summer in a peaceful and creative environment!
At Naturally Curious Summer camp, our staff are well trained and experienced to observe how your children best learn, what they are excited and interested in, and guide them from there! We have a wide variety of activities to engage all age levels and interests!
Your child will be led through group and individual activities that develop their social skills, leadership skills, and independence!
Everything from art projects, messy science, free time, and everything in between! The children participate in planning the day!

The Land We Love
At Wild Spirit Education we utilize a few different spaces in our program.
Fenced in green space – Our community classroom is a partnership with the Saskatoon Medavie Health Services West. They graciously fenced in a section of their land for us to use. This area provides our youngest students with a safe place to explore without having to be concerned yet about physical boundaries.
Open field space – the City of Saskatoon has designated “green space” throughout each neighborhood. Beside our school is one of these areas. We use it when we are playing larger group games, teaching our older children about natural boundaries and independent safety.
Forest Area – our “urban forest” is a much-loved space. It has a variety of plant life, small creatures (such as ducks, frogs, snails), both dry and wetlands, and plenty of room to explore. We use this area to build forts, climb trees, let the older children have more freedom and responsibility. The younger students come into this area in smaller groups with a teacher.
Address: 3002 Taylor Street East Taylor and Arlington Avenue
Please come around to the back parking lot as we use the back door as our main entrance. We are about mid-way down the building, with our logo on the door.
