The camp out has filled up -- maybe you can check back next Spring. The next camp out is scheduled for 15-16 April 2018.


First Time Campers Program (Spring 2017)
Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts is sponsoring a camp out for 5th & 6th grade First-time campers who may not otherwise have the opportunity to camp or may be underserved.  The Spring camp out is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, April 22-23, 2017.    

As a follow up to five very successful events in the past three years, the Wolf Trap National Parks Service, local Boy Scouts Troop 55 and the Friends of Wolf Trap have enhanced our program designed specifically for 5th and 6th grade boys and girls. This is a unique experience as camping is not usually permitted at the Wolf Trap National Park. We have a special permit to conduct this program. Our intent is to provide youth who do not have extensive camping experience the opportunity to learn to appreciate the great outdoors and gain a sense of independence.

As a Scout leader who has lead groups to week long summer camps, Mr. Pan serves as the Camp Director and can attest first hand to the challenges of having 5th and 6th graders go away for an overnight camp out for their first time without the supervision of their parents. This is an opportunity for youth to learn to become comfortable with the outdoors, have fun and build confidence, while not venturing too far from home.  This is also a great way for parents to learn to become more comfortable that their child can thrive independently.  

The program provides uniform tents for the event for the elementary school campers and local Boy Scout Troop 55 will be lending some troop gear (stove and Dutch ovens).  Scouts will lead a campout program for the participants which will include instructing on camp set up, working with gas camp stoves, cooking & clean up instructions, exploring the beauty of the nature park, conducting community service, participating in camp fire (under special permit) activities such as skits and smores, and completing a back stage tour of the Wolf Trap Performing Arts Filenes Center.  

Activities planned for the camp out experience include:  archery, fly fishing, bird watching, nature tours, community service, and performances on the local stages.

Enrollment is limited to only 48 participants and we will have over 30 volunteers (Scout/Venture/NPS/Community Youth and Adults) to help administer the program. The Wolf Trap National Park Service is the primary sponsor; however, the local Boy Scouts and the Friends of Wolf Trap are also actively involved.
