Camp Wonder connects to young Wonderers from ages 4-12 through heaps of fun and engaging activities designed to make it feel like they’re not even learning but gaining an educational perspective into the world of sustainability. Through play, kids will learn how the land and its resources can produce and contribute to art, architecture and wellbeing - just like their parents, who can “play” alongside their offspring for some good old fashioned family fun in the outdoors surrounded by peace, music and open-mindedness. A hub for discovery, our smaller festival goers will learn to how to reuse and reinvent everything from food scraps to donated t-shirts while creating their own little ecosystem within the greater Wonderfruit community. Every activity has a purpose or is designed to create an impact not only at Wonderfruit but at home too. At Camp Wonder, we think to the future by educating about our ethos because the next generation of Wonderfruit starts with our young Wonderers.
