Wildlife Explorer’s Camp
August 12th – 15th | 8:30am-3:30pm
HSSW is taking a trip beyond the four walls of our shelter to take campers on a unique experience through the tall evergreen trees of the rainforest, deep below the sea, and past the blustering wind and snow of Antarctica. Each day, campers will get to explore a new terrain and the animals that live there!
Disclaimer: Campers will not be leaving HSSW grounds, nor will they be interacting with wildlife.
What is included in my registration?
Camp registration fees include all materials, t-shirts, and some take home crafts as well! T-shirts will be handed out on the first day of camp and must be worn every day of camp for safety reasons.
What are camp hours?
Camp hours are 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The doors for drop off will open at 8:25am each morning. We do offer early drop off at 8am and late pick up at 4pm for an additional fee and while a staff member will be present in the room during this time period, activities will be self guided by the camper. You can book early drop off / late pick up at time of registration, or to arrange for care after registration, please contact our Community Outreach Coordinator, Faith at email@example.com or by phone at 608-478-4658.
Who leads camp?
Each camp is led by an HSSW staff and assisted by volunteers. All staff and volunteers involved in camps have had a background check. HSSW staff members leading camp are certified in first aid and CPR.
Do campers get to meet animals during camp?
Yes!! In addition to animal themed art projects and games, each day will include time to interact with animals. We always have dogs and cats on site for interactions, but children may also meet ferrets, rabbits, and guinea pigs as well. Our camp staff stress the importance of safety while interacting with any animal. If your child has allergies or is afraid of animals, please contact our Community Outreach Coordinator to discuss your concerns.
