Community Group Programs

Wildwood offers field trip programs for schools, park districts, home-schoolers, camps and other community groups. We also offer general campfire, hiking and animal show programs.  See age level below for more information on specific programs.

Booking A Program

Programs are usually scheduled on weekdays. Advance booking is required, but booking is based on seasonal room availability. 

January – March programs can begin booking in November of the previous year.
April – May programs can begin booking in February
June – August programs can begin booking in April
September – December programs can begin booking in July

We ask that you book your program by the 15th of the month before your program so we can schedule our staff. Programs booked after that date will have to wait for staff confirmation. To book your program, email Cara at cruffo@prparks.org or call 847-692-3570.
