Summer Camp WILD

Summer 2021 Edition


Summer Camp WILD is a week-long series, Monday through Friday all summer long! Each week is a new opportunity for children to have fun and learn through informal, hands-on, inquiry-based activities including informative zoo tours, exciting animal encounters, collaborative teamwork, creative art, and educational games. Camp immerses children in nature while fostering friendships and a love for the natural world. 

Please Note: In an effort to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, and maintain a safe environment for the campers, staff, and animals, masks are required to attend camp, and we have decreased the capacity for campers each week. Due to the smaller group size, Camp WILD will be offered by age to ensure developmentally appropriate curriculum for those campers each week.

5 - 10 years old
Camp Time:
9 a.m. - 4 p.m. each day

Nature has incredible ways of incorporating symmetry, patterns, textures, colors, sounds and so much more! Explore the amazing works of art that nature has to offer through hands-on sensory based activities, using found nature as the “paintbrush” for our activities. Learn new skills or put your own to the test. Create your own works of art, or leave them in nature for the next person to find or for the wind to blow through. Investigate shapes and patterns in shells, colors in plants, and mimicry through animals. Each are a part of nature’s pallet!
