Below are some sample images you can find in our photo gallery:

Under the safe guidance of knowledgeable peers and professionals, kids have the opportunity to enjoy:

WILDLIFE SAFARI- OUTREACH PRESENTATIONS: Campers visit local summer camps with some of the animals from the zoo to teach others about wildlife and the environment.

WILDLIFE PRESENTATIONS: Classroom lectures that offer up-close study of live animals.

NIGHT SAFARI: Exploring the zoo in the darkness of night, howling with the wolves and listening to the lions roar!

FALCONRY: Learn about the ancient practice of working with Birds of Prey.

HIKING: See, smell, taste, listen and touch the natural world around us. Learn to identify the many plants and animals we share this planet with.

CAVING: Discovering the world beneath our feet at the Warsaw Caves Convervation Area!

CANOEING: Explore the Indian River, keeping an eye out for turtles and water snakes basking in the summer sun or mischievous little minks playing along the shoreline.

OUTDOOR LIVING SKILLS: Learn which wild plants are edible, which are medicinal and those that can harm you. Learn to make Herbal Tea!

WALL CLIMBING: A climbing tower that offers a variety of challenges.

ARTS AND CRAFTS: Environmentally oriented, fun and educational.

TREE CLIMBING: Climb to the top of an ancient Hemlock tree over 60' high! Get a birds-eye perspective of the forest below.

RAPPELLING: Teens have the opportunity to try rappelling, a controlled descent down a high cliff using a rope, harness and rack. An adrenaline rush with a view!

SKATEBOARDING: Like bicycling, this is a fun and exciting "non-polluting" form of transportation! Those with their own skateboards and safety equipment will get the chance to visit a new skateboard park.

TRAMPOLINE: What does this activity teach us about nature? Absolutely nothing... but they're so much fun!
