Kids’ Camp for Junior Wildlife Rangers (age 7 to 12)

Your chance to work with the rangers, doing real ranger work.

As a Junior Wildlife Ranger, you get to go behind the scenes to help your ranger take care of the animals that live in our wildlife sanctuary and the bush that is their natural home. Anyone can visit and hang out with the animals, but if you want to do something really special, and you want to do real wildlife work, and you like getting dirty, sign up for a Kids’ Camp for Junior Wildlife Rangers.


Kids' Camp Fees

$95 per participant includes:

  • Kids’ Camp from 11am to 3pm
  • Gate entry any time after 9:30am
  • Chicken nuggets and chips and fruit drink for lunch
  • A discount coupon for one grownup to visit the wildlife sanctuary while you are working*

*At least 1 adult must be at the sanctuary while you’re doing Kids’ Camp, in case you need them. Your discount coupon is for 1 adult to buy a park entry ticket for $22 (instead of $30) on the day of your Kids’ Camp.


What you can expect on Kids’ Camp

  • You will step into the animals’ world, the bush alive with wildlife, for a day in the life of a Wildlife Ranger.
  • You will have so much fun going behind the scenes, helping your ranger and meeting the animals.
  • You will get lots of hands-on animal time because there won’t be more than 10 kids on Kids’ Camp.
  • You will learn how to feed the animals, clean their homes and be safe around them.
  • You will create challenges for the animals so they have as much fun as you do – we call this “enrichment”.
  • You will get dirty, you may get wet, and you’ll be pretty tired by the time Kids’ Camp ends.


Jobs a Junior Wildlife Ranger does

  • Go out in the bush with your ranger to collect branches and flowers for the possums.
  • Find termite logs and bugs for the echidnas and bilbies.
  • Fill up the kangaroos’ and emus’ grass feeders.
  • Take the snakes and lizards and turtles outdoors so they can swim and get some sun.
  • Clean the wombat camp and set up his enrichment challenges, ready for when he wakes up.
  • Talk to the cockatoos – they love hanging out with you and they’ve always got lots to say.
  • Check on the farm animals, look for chicken eggs and take the baby goat for a walk.


What you should wear and bring

  • Closed well-fitting shoes or runners with non-slip soles.
  • Long pants to protect your legs in the bush.
  • A hat or cap as you will be in the sun.
  • Sunscreen, and insect repellent so the bugs don’t bite.
  • A water bottle – rangers always have their water bottle with them.
  • A rain jacket in case it rains – a ranger’s work goes ahead no matter what the weather because the animals always need us.
