Education is a cornerstone of the Sawgrass Nature Center & Wildlife Hospital– “In the end, we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand, and we will understand only what we are taught”.

Camp Wild programs inspire an appreciation of South Florida’s unique environment and wildlife through fun, hands-on activities. Each day of camp features new lessons, games, encounters with live animals, and nature crafts. Kids will overcome fears and learn to safely explore the wild world around them. Our outdoor classroom, diverse wildlife, and wide range of activities and presenters make this camp a unique experience.
