Go WILD!

Summer Camp Sessions

Wild About Wildlife Ages 6-8 

2019 Dates Coming Soon!

 

Can owls turn their head in a full circle? Is there really a mammal that lays eggs? Can snakes actually swallow prey larger than their own head? “Wild About Wildlife” introduces our younger campers to wildlife in their very own backyard and to what makes mammals, birds, and reptiles so unique! Each day we will have up close encounters with animals that call Illinois home and participate in games, experiments, and crafts that are sure to amaze and excite that budding nature lover in your life!

 

TreeHouse Rangers Ages 9-11 

2019 Dates Coming Soon!

 

Why is wildlife important to the functioning of the world around us? And more importantly, why are wild animals important to us? “TreeHouse Rangers" is an exciting interactive camp that allows campers to advance their knowledge on native wildlife by discovering the unique and sometimes surprising adaptations that even the smallest wild critter has! We will learn to appreciate the roles that animals play through animal encounters and experiences and become champions for protecting wildlife. Campers will then be tasked with utilizing the knowledge gained about some of these animals and applying it to hands-on projects and enrichment crafts for our permanent residents! This is the perfect camp for children who are eager to learn about their surroundings and how they themselves can help make positive and lasting impacts!

 

(New!) Wildlife Career Camp Ages 12-14

2019 Dates Coming Soon! 

 

Wildlife rehabilitation is an important worldwide field that focuses on the care and treatment of wild animals. Rehabbers treat thousands of animals yearly and are at the forefront of noticing important trends in the environment! Our "Wildlife Career Camp” will allow campers to explore different animal-related careers including all aspects of wildlife rehabilitation through immersion in the daily workings of TreeHouse Wildlife Center. From veterinary care, to animal husbandry, to public education, this exploratory camp will allow campers to participate hands-on in mock case studies, animal enrichment projects, and more and give a taste to that animal lover in your life on what it takes to be a successful in the wildlife field.

These exciting and interactive day camps will give your child a hands-on opportunity to connect their lives with the wild world around them. Whether it's watching a rehabber stabilize a broken wing, participating in an animal enrichment project, or assisting in bottle feeding a fawn, your child will be sure to learn the basic facts and importance of native wildlife and leave with a positive and lasting experience. Come join other animal lovers for an experience unlike any other and don't forget to GO WILD!

TreeHouse Wildlife Center understands the importance of connecting children to the natural world around them. We believe in teaching our youth to act in environmentally conscience ways by getting them excited about nature through hands-on education and interactive play. We advocate getting our children back outdoors and understand the positive physical and mental impact activity outdoors has on our bodies.
