Birthday Party

Thank you for your interest in a birthday party at the Wolf Conservation Center!

We are happy to host parties for "friends" of the Center (i.e., people who have visited us previously).  If you have not yet visited, you will need to arrange a visit prior to the date of the party.

We welcome parties for children 6 years of age or older.

There is an absolute limit of 15 children at the party. 

Party description:
With the mission to educate people about wolves, their relationship in the environment and the human role in protecting their future, the Wolf Conservation Center has put together an informative and entertaining introduction to wolves in North America. We begin our programs with a brief slide presentation in our cozy cabin. 

After our informative introduction to wolves, we begin a wolf-related activity. Currently we offer the group an opportunity to give gifts to the ambassador wolves! Prior to visiting the wolves, the kids will assemble “enrichment boxes”. We will supply all kinds of goodies (spices, old toys, feathers, fur etc…) for the kids to choose from and they can create custom made gifts for the wolves to enjoy!  Crayons will also be provided so personal messages can added to the boxes as well. Once the boxes are completed, the birthday group will help throw the gifts into the wolves’ enclosures. Everyone will stay up with the wolves to observe the wolf behavior, learn more about wolves and to continue having a howling good time. The group then returns to the classroom area for pizza/cake.
