Summer Camps

Become the next generation of wildlife advocates! Wolf Park's youth programs focus on conservation learned through hands-on activities and personal connections with wild animals. We offer programs throughout the year for grades K-12.

Teen Wildlife Advocates

1-week program (June 24-28)

$255 (Scholarships Available!)

Teen Wildlife Advocates is a one-of-a-kind experience for high schoolers who are passionate about pursuing a career in wildlife conservation. Over the course of a week, campers will develop their skills and create their very own wildlife advocacy project at the end of the summer.

Campers will have opportunities to participate in volunteer work at Wolf Park and meet professionals in the field. Previous camps have featured guest speakers from NICHES Land Trust and Columbian Park Zoo.
