General Information
Animal lovers, aspiring veterinarians and naturalists won’t want to miss this camp! Campers will get firsthand experience in the care of Meadowside’s resident raptors, reptiles, amphibians, and insects. Join us for fun excursions to a variety of wildlife centers, including the zoo and an animal sanctuary, where our hosts will demonstrate animal care, feeding, and handling. During this week of walking in wildlife caretakers’ shoes, we will explore how human and animal lives intersect and what roles we play in this relationship.
