Join Us at the UWG Early Learning Center for an Exciting Adventure!

The Wolves Exploration Camp will provide your child with lots of opportunities to run around, get messy, and have fun (while sneaking in a few academic concepts- shhhhhhh, don't tell them!) The purpose of this camp experience is to provide a project-oriented approach to enhance academic instruction.

In this test-driven time, schools aren't able to delve into multi-disciplined approaches and allow children to participate in engaging projects. Wolves Exploration Camp will motivate your child to travel into the wonders of learning led by the expert team of instructors.

The Wolves Exploration Camp curriculum is designed for youth who will be attending Kindergarten, 1st or 2nd grade in August 2023

For complete Policy and Procedures regarding minors on campus, see UWG PL 7004, Protection of Minors on Campus and Associated Procedures.
