Update to Booking Policy

Beginning on March 1, 2024, all bookings must be paid in full at the time of purchase. However, at Wildwood, we want everyone to be able to enjoy the outdoors, and that means keeping our trips affordable. Payment plans will be available through Shop Pay Installments at checkout, and scholarships are available for those in need. Please contact us if you would like more information.

Anyone that has booked prior to March 1, 2024, will continue with their current payment plan. Deposits will be due at the time of booking, and the remaining balance will be due 1 week before the start of the trip.
