COVID19 Update: Cancelled due to closure of ESU Campus
Have you ever wanted to go turtle trapping or hunt for animal tracks? Maybe you would rather do a little snake-wrangling or bug catching! These are just some of the exciting activities that ESU Biology faculty will lead your child through in this ESU Biology Camp. This camp will run one week during the summer. Activities will include both indoor and outdoor activities. Campers will meet each morning on the 1st floor of the ESU Science Hall and will need to bring a sack lunch Monday through Thursday. Lunch will be provided on Friday. The camp will take some off-site trips to the Ross Research Area. All proceeds will help support maintenance of ESU natural areas.

COVID19 Update: We are looking into changing the location for Camp Wilson as we are unsure if ESU will have continuous availability over the summer. We will keep you posted on changes to this program as we move forward but are still hopeful we can execute this in a revised form.
Open since 1960, Emporia’s longest running Day Camp, Camp Wilson is a outdoor adventure day camp where kiddos can take a break from their screens and be active outdoors! Day campers will have team building and core values along with outdoor activities. Campers will also enjoy their favorites like fishing and swimming with nature themed activities. Campers will need to bring a sack lunch on Tuesday and Friday. Camp counselors will cook lunch on Monday and Wednesday. Parents are asked to join us for our FAMILY MEAL time on Thursday evening as the students get involved and help Cook their parents dinner. We will then enjoy the camp program that the students have prepared. Campers will need to be dropped off and picked up at Wilson Park, located on the Emporia State University Campus. All forms for students will be available online or at the Rec center. Must be turned in before first day of camp.
