WAMA CAMP FAQS

What is Wildwood’s mission?
“Wildwood Park for the Arts enriches the lives of Arkansans of all ages by creating community through nature and the arts.

What if my camper loses or forgets items at camp?
We collect any items we find each week in the Lost & Found in our administrative offices. If you arrive home and realize something is missing, call and let us know! We keep lost and found items for six weeks before donating them.

Wildwood is not responsible for any items that are lost or damaged while at camp. Campers are also responsible for keeping up with their own items. Please do not send anything with your camper that is irreplaceable or would be devastating to get dirty.

Can you accommodate campers with special needs?
Our counselors generally are not trained with the specific skills required to work with children with special needs. Exceptions can be made after we consult with the child’s parents and doctors. Your registration paperwork will include a section to let us know about any medications or needs your child has while at camp. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us, and we will do our best to work with you to make your child’s camp experience the best it can be.

Is financial assistance available?
Wildwood offers some limited scholarship funds to help children of single parents or from low-income families. For scholarship information, please email our Executive Director, Dr. Bevan Keating, bevan@wildwoodpark.org.
