Go wild with WildCare's camps!

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 a student assistant. Group size ranges from 14-16 children. 

Where are WildCare's camps being held in 2024?

WildCare's Spring Wildlife Camp will be held at 76 Albert Park Lane in San Rafael, WildCare’s original site. WildCare's Summer Wildlife Camp will be held at Dominican University's Angelico Hall in San Rafael, while we prepare for construction at our original site. During this process, WildCare will not be open for visitation. Our live ambassador animals will come to visit camp so your camper won’t miss out on their amazing wildlife experiences. We thank you for your understanding during this time of transition. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our education team at education@discoverwildcare.org or by calling 415-453-1000 ext. 190.

If you are interested in visiting, WildCare's transition site will be open for visits at a later date. Check back at discoverwildcare.org/visit or follow us on social media to find out about our visit hours.

WildCare’s Wildlife Hospital remains open for admissions of injured or orphaned animals 9:00am - 5:00pm, 7 days a week. If you have found an injured or orphaned animal, please call our hotline at 415-456-7283 (SAVE) for instructions.

Wildlife Camp Cancellation Policy

Cancellations made more than five weeks prior to the session’s start date will incur a $75 administrative fee.  Cancellations made less than five weeks prior to the session’s start date are non-refundable. There are no partial refunds for missed days.

Camp sessions are optimally designed for the stated grade groups. Please do not register your camper in a session for which they are not eligible. If you register your camper for a session for which they are not grade-appropriate, WildCare reserves the right to cancel your camper’s enrollment and apply our cancellation policy.

Medication Policy

Our staff is not authorized to administer medications of any kind to campers. If your child requires medication during the day they must be able to self-administer with minimal supervision. Campers will carry their own emergency medications such as Epipens and inhalers and camp staff will instruct and support campers should an emergency arise.

COVID-19 

We are no longer requiring the COVID-19 vaccine for our program but we ask that a child showing signs or symptoms of any illness stay home. All participants are welcome to wear a mask if they choose.
