The Wilds

There is a place outside Columbus, OH called The Wilds.  It is affiliated with the renowned Columbus Zoo, and is comprised of 10,000 acres.  When you drive into the area, you feel as though you have entered another state – what I picture Montana or Wyoming to be.
It is filled with animals and amazing outdoor experiences.

We picked up our youngest from her first sleep away camp experience.  She was there from Sunday through Thursday.  Long enough for me.  Perfect for her too.

Oh, I missed this little one.
She went with two of her buddies.

Here are some of the amazing things they did and others can do at The Wilds.

You sleep in a Yurt.  They have an adult only area and the Yurts are awesome!

This is the dining Yurt.  They were rewarded if they had zero waste at each meal.  Love that.

They had to build one of these shelters out of sticks and grass and stuff they could find.
Here are some pics that Daughter #2 actually took this week.  She has quite an eye!

Overall, it was a wonderful experience for the girls.  If you have a free day or are in the Columbus area, this is worth a trip!
Enjoy the day!
