Youth Programs

Wolf Park offers a variety of youth programs including summer camps, Junior Keeper camps, and our Next Generation Wildlife Advocates program.


Can’t wait until summer? Wolf Park’s Spring Art & Enrichment Camp is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to get an early start on summer camp fun. These one-day camps are filled with crafts, games, ambassador animal encounters, and more. We’ll incorporate some of the crowd-favorite activities from our summer camps and explore nature through exciting art projects as we learn about the value of environmental enrichment from our ambassador animals.


Summer Science Camps are a fantastic opportunity for young wildlife enthusiasts. Small, grade-based groups offer campers a personalized learning experience as they play games, make crafts, and meet our ambassador animals. Each camp is centered around a unique theme that will inspire campers to continue to learn and develop their passion for wildlife.

Summer Art & Enrichment Camps are perfect for creative young people who want to explore their love of nature through art and hands-on activities. In the two day camps, kids will embrace their artistic skills in a variety of nature and conservation themed art projects as they learn about the value of environmental enrichment from our ambassador animals. 

Next Generation Wildlife Advocates is a one-of-a-kind, immersive experience for high schoolers interested in pursuing a career in wildlife conservation. Campers will have the opportunity to meet professionals in the field and volunteer in different areas of Wolf Park, gaining hands-on experience that will prepare them for internships. Over the course of two separate weeks, campers will develop their skills and create their very own wildlife advocacy project at the end of the summer.


Junior Keeper camp provides a once in a lifetime experience for high schoolers  interested in pursuing a career in animal husbandry, wildlife research, or wildlife conservation. The two-day experience introduces campers to a variety of pathways within the field of wildlife conservation and engage in daily keeper duties at Wolf Park.
