Wildlings Camp is a great way to introduce your child to the wonders of the outdoors. Our furry friends the cottontail rabbit, whitetail deer, raccoon, fox, and more take center stage at this camp. Touch & feel animal furs, head out on a hike to spot animal tracks and learn about some of the furry friends that make Hitchcock Nature Center their home.
Online pre-registration is required as space is limited.
Please note: Camps may be attended by students who are ages 3 to 5. No additional students or parents please.
We request campers bring a refillable water bottle, and have sunblock and insect repellent applied beforehand.
Due to COVID-19 the format of this program may be adjusted. Please check back for updates.
