Wolf Park offers summer science camps for children, grades K – 8, with grade-based themes. Our Junior Keeper camp offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience for students aged 14-17 interested in zoology careers.

“Where the Wild Things Were” Two Day Camp (Grades 6-8)

2021 Dates: July 19-20, July 22-23

Where the Wild Things Were will focus on the interconnectedness of the ecosystem, how humans have altered wildlife and habitats, and how campers can make a positive impact on threatened wildlife through coexistence and conservation. Campers will also learn how zoological facilities like Wolf Park benefit wildlife populations.
