Wildlife Camp

Get your kids back outside!

Wildlife Camp provides campers with an unforgettable wildlife experience, including live animal visits from our rescued wildlife ambassadors, animal-themed games, nature crafts, nature excursions and much more!

Weekly camp programs are designed to captivate, engage and challenge young people, while building conservation knowledge and values.

Wildlife Camp is a fun way to stimulate learning about wildlife and instill a life-long respect for the environment. Our mission is to teach children to live well with wildlife.

Small groups in a secure setting

Programs are taught by experienced teachers/naturalists who share their enthusiasm, knowledge and sense of wonder with children. The teacher is assisted by an adult teaching aide and student assistant. Group size ranges from 14-16 children.

Session 8A (morning) Growing Up Wild

Register for this camp...

     

Growing up in the wild can be a tricky task!

Examine the fascinating ways different animals raise their young, the interesting adaptations baby animals have to survive in the wild and simple ways we can help to keep them safe from harm. No field trips for this session.

Campers must have attended pre-school, and all campers must be fully potty trained to be enrolled in WildCare’s camps.

This means they must be fully independent in all aspects of using the bathroom as WildCare Camp staff is not permitted to assist campers in any way while in the bathroom. Potty trained campers:

- Can tell the teacher when they need to go to the bathroom
- Can attend to their own hygiene without adult assistance
- Can fasten their own clothing
