About This Organizer

Possumwood Acres Wildlife Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) non-profit wildlife rehabilitation center that offers an array of educational summer camps for children of all ages.  During their selected camp they will learn how to care safely for wild life in a supervised environment with our certified camp counselors and wild life handlers.  Our educators focus on different skills needed for wildlife care and preservation in our private re-created habitats. Students return year after year excited to interact with the animals they have bonded with, which in turn creates a lasting relationship with nature for years to come. As we exist solely on donations and grants (with the help of our dedicated volunteers), all funds collected for summer camps will be used to rehabilitate the animals your child will learn about. This aspect teaches children that their eargerness to learn has helped save the very animals they care for! They immediately feel a connection to our animals knowing their family has contributed to their well being.  As not all children have the opportunity to learn about, care for or bond with wildlife in their home environment safely, we encourage returning students to select a different camp each year to ensure they are recieving a variety of useful education. We currently hold state and federal licenses for wildlife rehabilitation, possession, and education which enables us to provide the best possible environment for your child to learn and have fun! Watch a short video of what we are all about and meet a few of the animals who call Possumwood Acres their home. See you at camp!
