Well, look no more. There are still a few spaces left at two “wild” summer camps at the Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center in Mansfield, Ga., according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division.
These camps are available to kids from age 9-13 and topics will vary based on the focus of the camp.
Day Camp ($135 per camper)
- iCAN: Conserving Animals in Nature: July 16–18 (ages 10–12): Campers will explore the many ways citizen scientists help to conserve animals in nature! Campers will learn how to use technology in the outdoors to discover what biologists do in the field. Hiking, nature play, live animal presentations, and other outdoor skills are just a sampling of the fun activities planned for this camp.
Overnight Camp ($250 per camper)
- Outdoor Adventure Team Challenge Camp: June 24–28 (ages 11–13): Team work and team spirit abound as campers work together to complete challenges utilizing the outdoor skills they’ve learned and developed throughout the week. This is a fast-paced, high energy camp. Campers’ days will be brimming with outdoor pursuits such as hiking, canoeing, fire building, and wilderness survival. Our trained counselors will guide campers along their journey culminating in an all-out, every-team-for-themselves competition!
