About the Camp –
Camp WILD Things is a truly unique camp experience, and the kids that attend camp over and over are its best promoters. Camp is an exploration of the wonders of the wild and the creeping, crawling and flying creatures that call it home. Campers meet some of the amazing animals in our care, and make a few new friends that love nature just like they do.
Camp WILD Things strengthens the bond between children and nature, the great outdoors, our environment and all living things. Campers can’t stop talking about their day at camp after leaving, so Mom’s and Dad’s you will learn some new things too!
Registration to open the beginning of March 2024.
Nature Explorers (ages 6-8)
Our Wildlife Neighbors: June 10th – 14th
Join us for a fun filled week as we explore our “backyard” for the wealth of wildlife native to South Carolina. Through exploration, games, stories, crafts and live animal encounters, we’ll discover an amazing world of animals and their habitats right outside our doors.
Wild Senses: July 15th – 19th
We all know about our five senses, how we see, hear, smell, taste, and touch the world around us but how is it different for our wild neighbors? Join us as we get a new look at the world through animal senses using exploration, games, stories, crafts and live animal encounters with our CWC ambassadors.
Junior Naturalists (ages 9-12)
Our Wildlife Neighbors: June 17th – 21st
If you love wildlife, you will enjoy this week as we study our wildlife neighbors and their habitat to find how we can best help conserve them. We will use the tools of science to observe, track and investigate South Carolina’s native wildlife as well as share live animal encounters with the CWC ambassadors.
Wild Senses: July 22nd – 26th
We are all animals with senses that help us navigate the world around us. Find out how very differently the birds, mammals, reptiles and insects around us sense this world we share using experiments, exploration and live animal encounters with our CWC ambassadors.
