Lynx (ages 10-12)

At Camp Wildcat, the Lynx program is crafted to nurture self-reliance, instill a sense of teamwork, and inspire sound decision-making. These fundamental pillars naturally evolve through a diverse array of engaging activities.

As youngsters in this age group become increasingly cognizant of their abilities relative to their peers, they become more aware of what they perceive as “challenging” or “easy.” This self-awareness significantly influences their approach to new challenges and their willingness to embrace them during their camp experience.

Camp Wildcat places a strong emphasis on empowering campers to confidently venture beyond their comfort zones in a safe and supportive environment. Each two-week session follows a structure aimed at fostering camaraderie and a profound sense of belonging, thereby enriching your child’s overall journey. The Lynx itinerary is carefully tailored to suit different age groups, incorporating free-choice periods and weekly team-building activities.
