Wildlings Camp is a great way to introduce your child to the wonders of the outdoors. Why are some birds so colorful? Do all birds build nests? How do they fly so high? Campers will answer all these questions and more as they learn to use binoculars, climb our observation tower for a bird's eye view, learn about wings, and even meet a live bird friend.

Online pre-registration is required as space is limited.
