Perfect for animal lovers, young naturalists, and aspiring zoologists and wildlife biologists who want to learn to care for and conserve animals of all sorts! Learn about domestic and wild animals as we use the farm and forest to get up close and personal with the animals we share the earth with.
On the farm, help with chores, adopt a chicken, collect eggs from the chicken coop, or brush a goat. In the forest, seek salamanders, track animal signs in the woods, or make your own fishing pole to use at Lake Wintergreen! Each session includes a visiting presenter who will share a special creature or two with our animal loving campers.
Amazing Animals Campers will also go on hikes, play games, nibble in the garden, sing songs, build forts, and have time for unstructured, creative play. Activities vary each session, so children may do one or more sessions of Amazing Animals Camp.
The Amazing Animals Camp teachers love science and facilitating learning through exploration! Please see the “Frequently Asked Questions” page for more details on the qualifications of our camp staff.
Camper/Staff ratio: One camp teacher and assistant teacher for every 12 children (6:1 child to staff ratio, not including Junior Counselors).
This is a SMALLER group than our other camp options (which are 20 – 24 campers per group) in order to allow for more time and attention to closely interact with our animal friends!
All campers receive a camp tshirt. Camp hoodies are available for purchase when you register (optional).
