Summer Day Camps

Summer camps provide a great way to learn about nature during summer break. 


Summer Day Camp

Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge offers a free one-day camp during the summer months to children ages 8-10 and 11-13. The children enjoy a full day on Wheeler Refuge experiencing many hands-on indoor and outdoor activities focusing on wildlife and conservation.


The fun will include scavenger hunts, plant identification, bird studies, native reptiles and amphibians, signs of wildlife, nature crafts, and fishing. A unique keepsake tee shirt, which will be worn the day of the camp, will be available for all the campers for a nominal fee. 


Sign-up begins in May.
