Vacation Week Camps at Wellfleet Bay

Children ages 5-11 can spend school vacation at Wellfleet Bay in February and April.

February

Foxes, squirrels, and wild turkeys are pretty common. But we know there are many more animals that live or pass through the wildlife sanctuary.

Spend a week learning about the critters that prowl around throughout the winter and hone your nature detective skills. Play games, explore the trails and create artwork while discovering how different types of animals survive the cold. 

April

Celebrate spring and watch the return of birds and some fish migrating back to Cape Cod. Animals that have been snoozing through winter are also beginning to stir.

We’ll explore ponds, marsh and trails as well as enjoy some fun indoor activities.

These programs are generously subsidized by supporters of our annual fundraising event Wild Wild Wellfleet!
