Each summer, we host a series of camps and reoccurring program series. Information on these programs will be available in early Spring. Check back with us soon or follow us on Facebook to receive updates.
Junior Keeper Camp
Campers in two different age groups get a hands-on look at what animal keepers do and learn how we take care of the animals. These two-day camps cover everything from animal welfare to enrichment to how to give a tour. They'll see animal feedings, enrichment, food prep, and more while learning how to become a professional animal keeper. These camps are organized in partnership with the Boys & Girls Club in Red Lodge.
Wildlife Art Camp
This full-week camp with art teacher and former zookeeper Lindi O’Brien introduces campers to drawing and sculpting animals in a variety of media from pencil to oil paint. No prior art experience is needed. Students have a chance to sketch the animals live, and the last day of art camp is an art show open to parents and teachers.
The Sanctuary and Red Lodge Carnegie Library are providing passports for stuffed animals exploring Red Lodge this summer. Participants can pick up these free passports at the library or the Sanctuary gift shop. Fill out your stuffie’s bio and go on adventures to collect stickers or stamps.
What you and your stuffie can do:
Attend the Red Lodge Carnegie Library’s Stuffed Animal Sleepover event (date TBD)
Attend the Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary’s Critter Care event: August 3rd
Volunteer at one of the Stewardship Saturday park clean-ups at the Sanctuary: every other Saturday all summer
Go on a hike in the national forest, then take your passport to get a sticker from the Beartooth Ranger Station
Attend one of the monthly moon walks hosted by the U.S. Forest Service
Go on a picnic in one of Red Lodge’s parks
Take your stuffie for ice cream at Scoops
