Conservation Camp is a unique way for kids, ages 8-13, to get first-hand experience of what a week in the shoes of a wildlife biologist is like. At camp, students will learn real life applications of wildlife sciences, meet animal ambassadors, and have a blast working with other students that love the outdoors.

The team of dedicated scientists at The Rattlesnake Conservancy are committed to giving your child a memorable and safe experience. Their counselors are experienced working with children from all age groups and are thrilled to guide your young scientist on a journey to learn about the ecosystems of Florida, native plants and animals, and how they can be involved in conservation of wildlife and their habitat.
