Treat Your Inquisitive Child to Summer Wildlife Camp at WildCare!

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.

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.

Field Trip Transportation

Most of our camp sessions have one or two offsite excursions. Campers will go on off-site excursions to Phoenix Lake on Tuesdays and the Marin Headlands on Thursdays (except 3-5 year olds). WildCare does not provide transportation to the off-site locations, so campers must be dropped off and picked up at the field trip sites. Directions will be included in the information packet, as well as available on the first day of camp.

Special Considerations for Pre-K Campers (Sessions 1, 10A, 10B)

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
