The University of Iowa Wildlife Camps goals for its participants are simple and sincere. These goals include; providing opportunities that increase awareness of the natural world, nurture appreciation for the wild and increase actions that care for the outdoors. We do this through hands-on experiences that hope to excite and kindle a love for nature.

Wildlife Camps at Macbride Nature Recreation Area

We offer camps in the Summer, and during Spring and Winter breaks. Summer registration will open March 1.

Wildlife Camps at DNR State Parks

We expanded Wildlife Camps to six Iowa DNR State Parks in the summer of 2017 thanks to an Iowa DNR REAP Grant and we're excited to continue this program in 2019.
