WOLF CAMP FOR KIDS

Give the young animal lover in your family a chance to thrive among wolves all week long! The four day program will include opportunities for your child to:

• Learn all about wolves: Wolf 101
• Discover the various myths that surround wolves and to create their own and share.
• Walk with a wolf!
• Play a unique game of hide and seek using tracking and telemetry tools that real wolf biologists use in the field!
• Create plaster paw prints from real tracks in the field. They’re great for show and tell!
• “Wolfy” arts and crafts, howl-a-thons and more!

The program will run with a minimum of 4 children and a maximum of 10. All children who complete the program will get a special “Junior Wolf Biologist” certificate! Pre-registration is required.

CELEBRATE EASTER WITH AN EGG HUNT WITH A TWIST

Saturday, April 7th - Join us to learn about the mythology, biology and ecology of wolves in North America and then join in an egg-hunt with a twist! Instead of looking for eggs, guests will help hide them for Ambassador wolves Alawa and Zephyr to find.  Guests will also visit the WCC's critically endangered red wolves and Mexican gray wolves.

Pre-registration is required.  Click here to register now.



UP, UP, AND AWAY!

We're celebrating Earth Day a little early this year with an exciting bird of prey experience presented by Master Falconer Lorrie Schumacher of TALONS! Guests will meet, touch, and catch beautiful feathered ambassadors during the educational and interactive bird of prey experience -  make sure to bring a camera!  Everyone will be given opportunities to photograph the raptors and to be photographed with them too.  Guests will also enjoy visiting WCC's Ambassador wolves and behold the critically endangered red wolves and Mexican wolves.
Pre-registration is required and space is limited.  Register now for the 11AM program or the 2PM program.
